When you peer through the deep reds of Kenndi Carter’s work, you’re not just squinting into a love story. Under the blood of her work you catch highlights almost golden to the touch , deep skin and shadow navigating as its own character. The subject: young lovers. Carter sometimes builds images featuring young lovers using classic paintings as the foundation. The Birth of Venus (goddess of love, sex and fertility) was painted in the mid 1400s by Italian Painter, Sandro Botticelli. Kennedi spins her own version with Venus Pudica using common house textures, home light and shadow to tell a different story.
