(Curatorial caption, accessed 23 November 2014)
This photograph was commissioned by the National Galleries of Scotland and is based on Titian's painting of the same name, which is owned by the National Galleries. Colvin's work was created by painting onto a specially-created three-dimensional set, which was then photographed to create a two-dimensional image. The objects in the set, such as shells and photographs of people in the sea, reflect elements of the original painting. Colvin brings his Venus up to date with a twist behind her left eye is a camera on a tripod, so the observed subject of the image is also the observer.
