Description A new work made of two collages, inspired by the Velvet's song; I've always loved the dark intoxicating sensuality of it.My Venus in furs is much lighter though. The dark sensuality is present, but with lots of funny touches. Venus is just a silhouette that could represent any woman. She's like I 'see' her in the song: dominating, self-confident. Posing like a statue, surrounded with candles to be praised like the holy Mary (nothing less, lol).Her dress is in furs, naturally. But I made it much less creepy than I first wanted ;-). I care for your sensitivity, see!The lion, again symbolizing the Man in my mind. Here, he's Venus' game partner.. probably ready to win with all his toys, gadgets and lil helpers. He loves his Venus: he brought the nicest 'shiny shiny boots of leather' for her.The mice and lil fishes are ready to make the cats crazy: in the next minute, the proud Venus will be all naked. Defenceless, vulnerable. Or just the opposite! ;-)The lion cub, a baby, a symbol of union more than a baby, a symbol of a 'life together', is here to remind the main bond is not bondage, lol, just love.
