The original oil painting "Her Judgement of Paris" by Jason Rafferty. The media is oil on hand-stretched oil-primed canvas. It was painted in Asheville, NC by Jason Rafferty.

This painting presents a contemporary take on the classic myth "The Judgement of Paris", in which the mortal man Paris is tasked to judge three goddesses in terms of their physical beauty and award a golden apple "to the fairest." The viewer traditionally assumes a voyeuristic role, gazing upon female nudes stripped of their garments. In this painting, Venus assumes control as she holds the apple underfoot and returns the gaze of the viewer. She communicates strength and authority with a pose and red costume that recall Velazquez's Innocent X. The surrounding environment is dreamy, diffuse, and unsettling, more like Francis Bacon's Innocent X. The male figures taking the role of Paris are strangely doubled, wearing the same costume. The painting is cropped midway through their heads, conveying a sense of anonymity upon them. The brushwork is variously loose and tight, abstract and representational, impasto and thinly glazed, spontaneous and controlled, with the goal being a unified, animated image. 

Jason uses the finest quality oil paints and constructs his paintings archivally, with longevity in mind. He is scrupulous with quality checking, and is focused on delivering you a quality piece of art that can be enjoyed for generations.
