Searching for Aphrodite

The island of Cyprus is a mix of paradoxes. Steeped in both history and mythology it is importantly the birthplace of Aphrodite goddess of love and fertility. But the Goddess of love depicts a much darker and more interesting complex emotional narrative representing a complicated metaphor for gender, love and sexuality.

In this ongoing project, I am looking at the myth of Aphrodite through a contemporary sometime abstract approach exploring still life, portrait and landscape images which includes places of my own personal romantic encounters and adding my own love story.
