Artist´s Overview: “Man exists destined to cease existing…

Creation of matter until its disintegration

Samuel Santos on "Islands-2019", Madeira, Art Center Caravel

“My painting Seeds of Aphrodite was inspired by the work "Birth of Venus" by Botticelli, I´ve tried to represent inherent, ever-fruitful, and cyclical, fertility with a symbolic pomegranate, but chose to veil transient Beauty itself, which Nature uses as but a means to an end.”
