from the FRUIT ROUTES Series.
Acrylic, pebbles, inks, varnish and oil pastel on canvas.
Framed in a bespoke zebrano tray frame.
A fruit which originated in southern Mexico, the papaya has extraordinary deep orange-pink translucent flesh with beautiful pearl-like seeds. The contrasting lime green skin appeals to Menant so much. It was transported via Costa Rica to the Caribbean, Florida, and California then reached Hawaii. The English word ‘papaya’ derives from the endangered Arawak language of eastern Venezuela, Guyana and Surinam.
Traditionally it is eaten for breakfast across Central America; in Asia and South America, an enzyme from the leaves is mixed into a paste to tenderize meat.
As recently as 2007, the Royal Star papaya was discovered in Mexico, a smaller fruit which has a distinctive star-shaped cavity where the seeds are buried in the deep orange flesh. This abstract painting, the second version of the fruit, is all about the ripe flesh bursting with juice and pips, the varnish and inks carry the scent onto the canvas.
Sandra is an independent artist working from her Wimbledon Studio in London. She loves making compositions, abstract or semi-figurative, to engage the imagination, and create emotional bonds between her paintings and the art lovers’ inner feelings. Palette choice and texture produce dynamic, original canvases to bring life to your space. Sandra is a colourist, with a preference for vibrant pigments: her style is inspired by travels and iconic cultural motifs, plants and atmospheres.
Her work is catalogued in Series: Fruit Routes in progress, South East Asia, Japan, Volcanic, Flowers, and this website is being expanded all the time.
Private viewings, Solo shows or Collective Exhibitions are an essential part of her work: she is proud to share her original creations with art lovers and sells to private art collectors from Singapore to New York, Europe and the U.K.
