‘Aphrodite 7’ is a unique painting by the Portuguese artist Francisco Santos. It depicts and abstract composition consisting of coloured lines distributed vertically as well as horizontally, dividing the canvas in several lines, rows and blocks. ‘Aphrodite 7’ is one of largest paintings in this series.
“This style is a turning point in my most recent work. Contrasts, calm harmony, balance and tonal beauty characterize these ‘lines paintings’. The bright palette ranges from strong, full colours tones, to soft watercolour values and finds its peak with an almost “black and white” intensity, applied in parallel on the canvas.” — Francisco Santos
