Inspiration:By Sadé

  In working on these paintings, I drew a lot of my inspiration from Sandro Botticelli’s painting, The Birth of Venus. Aphrodite’s pose for her birth from the sea heavily impacted my decision to play with its form and recreate what I would call the Afrodite Series; Khoudia, Imaan, and Liya. Each Afrodite work depicts a Black woman adorned with beautiful natural hair in different styles and textures, hence the name choice of “Afro”dite.
Being the goddess of love, I painted Afrodite in such a way that her viewer would fall in love with her each time they looked at her. Each work needed to evoke the power she had for making anyone fall in love. I also wanted her beauty to stand apart from any other depiction of what Aphrodite would traditionally resemble- she, like Bertony’s wine, needed to be unique and invigorating.
