Damian Chavez
Venus with Golden Arrows

2015

About

In Venus with Golden Arrows we see Chavez's fascination and facility with pattern and design. A classic 1920's era model poses as a modern day Venus, holding her arrows at the ready. Soft light falls across her naked body even as she modestly looks off into the distance. This is a gorgeous piece full of rich hues of blue and turquoise. Mr. Chavez hails from California but followed his interested in history and art to study abroad in Florence, Prague and Paris. He later attended the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. Influenced by the thought and art of antiquity and the classic modern artists such as Gustav Klimt, Chavez’s main subject is the female form. His figures and portraits stand in as depictions of people but also as a psychological and allegorical device. His work is at once classic and modern, feminine and strong. He says, “In entering the spirit of sincere classical art and a symbolist making mode, I experience a call to expression that is rich in substance, unfeigned in its display, noble in its aspiration and perennial in its pleasure.”
