Aphrodite is presented in a limited series of Collectors' portraits. Each piece bears witness to a metamorphosis, offering an emotional vision of this timeless icon. Rachel Convers' Les états d'âmes d'Aphrodite is divided into three sections: Nostalgia, Renaissance and Reverie.
This collection, unveiled in October 2023, heralds the start of an emotional cycle.
A Sculptural Metamorphosis
The starting point for each painting is the sculpture of Aphrodite. It stands like an imposing stele, taking on a monumental dimension, like the divinities themselves.
The raw materiality of the stone shines through, with its chiselling marks and carvings bearing witness to a journey through the centuries. The eroded chin and altered nose bear witness to the inexorable effects of time.
A Work Shaped By Dualities
From the outset, the viewer is struck by the subtle duality between the frozen immobility of the sculpture and the captured vitality, where emotion is expressed through an ephemeral, fleeting state. The temporalities of stone and emotion are in opposition, creating a dichotomy between the permanent and the ephemeral.
