Love Sick

1997

About

The figure of a young child dressed in pink stands fully at the center of a lush verdant garden with Kelly green vines and an olive colored bush in the background. Small purple and lavender hearts, including a collaged hibiscus flower, are imposed on the child's figure; her face is curiously mature. Pencil sketches are found in the back of the painting. Artist’s signature on right hand corner. Roxanna Melendez is a visual artist, who often uses Caribbean themes in her paintings. Born in Puerto Rico, she graduated with an MSW from Columbia University and studied art at Hunter College and at The Art Students League. Melendez has exhibited in Long Island, New York City, Woodstock, and the Capital District. Her bold paintings depict real life events within a personal symbolism. Melendez explores her cultural roots and her life in New York City through paintings with strong figurative and narrative elements.
