A dazzling masterwork by visionary painter Robert Venosa.
It is a classic Venosa representation of the supernatural, transcendent worlds that were his artistic signature.
Only few have painted the light as powerfully as Robert Venosa. In his amorphous, crystalline, otherworldly landscapes he projects the light with a definitive edge and great intensity, always reflecting its full spectrum, brilliance and translucency while juxtaposition it against its darker manifestations.
One great central focus of Robert Venosa’s life was to create his impressive artistic body of work. Another was his never ceasing curiosity about the non-consensus reality aspects of our existence. This led him to seek out the mysterious shamanic realms during numerous visits to the Amazonian Rainforest.
The resulting experiences immensely fueled his imagination and inspired him to create timeless masterpieces which still captivate the viewer through their ethereal forms, cosmic content and numinosity.
Very few original Venosa paintings are currently available for sale. This is a rare opportunity to own a Robert Venosa collection piece.
