..It all started with art and heart.
A growth through the wonders of the free mind.
Venus always saw the pinnacle of acceptance would come from those who adore the oomph of the new and wonderful….

Venus Virgin Tomarz, SPACE MONKEYS, 2019-22, collage, 91cm x 122cm.

Venus Virgin Tomarz, Temptation Time, 2019, collage.

Venus Virgin Tomarz invites you to examine modern day conflicts through a series of exploratory collages. The works take you through the development of technology, climate change, and the increase in world population, waste/rape of the land resources, disease/illness and the impacts of these changes to our planet, society, ethics and values.

The project aims to link historical understanding of eco-systems of nature and the biblical reference (GENISIS) of the Garden of Eden to our current crisis the world/Globe faces, using cyphers / metaphors and set constructs to establish a central theme connecting the artist interpretation/view of a garden.

Artist Venus takes the audience on a journey through time and space, telling a traditional ancient story in the hope within the present and hope for future generations to take the opportunity to reflect, review and rectify their individual and collective impact on Earth.

The need to explore and find a new planet to call home. Or is that to be to rape and pillage the resources to fix Earth…as PEAK is drawing near.

The project planning & preparation began in early 2018, with specific image items collected, some items photographed then printed to create the visual / narrative.  As the series developed and world events such as the Coronavirus came into play, each scene electrified the significance of the message.

The artist began creating this body of work in solation during the COVID-19 lockdowns.

This body of work is collage on large canvas to be sold as an original piece at gallery exhibition.

Prints of the series will also be available in various sizes (unframed only).

There’s no glimmer with our glamazon.
She’s the glambassador of intersexuality.
The land of zoom where all creatures are fun and wise.
Where did this artsexual come from?

The gutter would be fashionable, but that’s not it.

You could say Venus came from Cool City. And you’d be right.
She’s been chilling in Cool City until the eggs of genius hatched.
And we love a smart chick.

It all started with art and heart.
A growth through the wonders of the free mind.
Venus always saw the pinnacle of acceptance would come from those who adore the oomph of the new and wonderful.

She is the product of a rampant imagination that found itself applying to all areas of beauty, business and enterprise. There was something missing though. She found it in the wardrobe of deluxe fabrication. The wow factor made her whole. Her fate was to be a femme. The proper use of the femme fatale if the truth be known.

Out of the shell came Venus. The fashionistic.

And with such impact. She has rocketed to the galaxy of untold glamour and panache.

Never has an emergence been quite so fun and phallic. Riding a rocket, the glamazon … you do the math.

In the distance behind this rocketing star are strewn her huge careers in music, design, fashion, make-up, hair and all the other dazzlers.

Enter now, please, the Glamazone.

Venus Virgin Tomarz has eclipsed everything.

The glamburger with the lot.

Eat.
