Venom – A Work of Art with Deep Meaning

What’s really behind this artwork and how I was inspired to create it. I am getting my thoughts together to create more figurative works and if anyone has any ideas or comments please share with us your ideas on figurative art and what you might like to see on canvas.

A) My initial thoughts for “Venom” were inspired by the sex of woman herself. The sexual power of the female species in our society. The snake is a sensual creature that merges with the sensual tendencies of woman. To me, the movement of the serpent mimics the movement of women. This work of art was more about sex than the classic bible myth, although Eve does play a part in this piece as well.

B) This piece also has to do with feminism and should also project the power of the female to the viewer. The whole painting is about being feminine and sexy. It’s a window into the soul of a woman’s sexuality. When in the act of sex itself, the woman becomes a serpent, if you will. The movements and actions of the female in a sexual state resembles the slithering motions of serpents and the faceless figure transcends into the natural world of subconscious thinking, fantastical thoughts and should fuel our imagination.

Starving Artist Law – Important Info For Artists

Believe it or not, there are dozens of legal organizations which have as their sole goal to provide free legal services to nonprofit arts organizations, as well as to artists who can’t afford legal services.  These organizations are great resources.

Issues often handled include contract negotiations, mediation services, nonprofit incorporation, copyright information and infringement lawsuits, tax information, estate planning, and lease review.  VLA organizations also provide education programs, including seminars, publications, and the maintenance of art law libraries.  See the NEA page for a description of VLA assistance.
