Skinny Venus

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Italian artist Anna Utopia Giordano reconfigures romantic representations of the iconic Venus character in the Western Art canon using Photoshop.

“Giordano reconfigures these iconic representations to embody the notion of the current aesthetic standards of beauty as she transforms voluptuous figures into trimmed goddesses. Images of venus, the goddess of love has been employed by Giordano to act as a cohesive framework from which to organize a collection of thinned waists, slimmed arms, legs and stomachs in combination with an enhanced bust to portray the appreciated aesthetic of the 21st century.”
