Gyðja - Ethereal Venus - Original Artwork 2021


The story behind the artwork

One of two original artworks in this style, this stunning, diorama-esque three dimensional artwork is a celebration of Italian Renaissance art. Using sections of Botticelli’s masterpiece, Kristjana has created a powerful modern interpretation in which iconic mythological figures are superseded by the triumph of fantastical nature.

The enigmatic aura of the original is only heightened by the resplendent flora and fauna found in this piece. Human and animal are united by their ornamentation, both equal participants in the pulsating energy radiating from the artwork. A watchful stag stands guard beside Kristjana’s Venus, his stillness at odds with the spiralling butterflies and dragonflies, their wings imparting a trail of technicolor in their wake. An avian quartet sit in the foreground amid tumbles of roses that radiate from the mossy green border, a backdrop for the ebullient gold leaf that only heightens the drama.
