Earthrise Over Venus – mixed media painting on 120 x 90 Cm canvas by Richard Roper AUD $2,800

Earthrise Over Venus refers to an imagined rising of the Earth as seen from Venus with the Earth enlarged and an atmosphere that is predominantly carbon dioxide and mythical creatures that might evolve on a planet with no oxygen and atmospheric pressure ninety times greater than that of our Earth . But the Venusian landscape is also a female torso referring to the legendary figure of Venus that has been painted by many artists over many centuries.

Brolga Insights

This painting was commissioned by Wine Insights Australia who also purchased the copyright to use the image on their wine labels and for promotion of their new range of wines. The Australian Brolga is known to Indigenous Australians as the “native companion” and is a sacred totem in that region of New South Wales  Australia where the wine grapes are grown.
