About

In this mixed media painting on canvas, an elderly woman with strong bird-like features sits playing a red cello. The side of the chair in which she sits resembles a fish. These images are archetypal, suggestive of creatures that embrace more than one species or mutate from one to another. Muscular brushstrokes of green and mustard in the background do not cover parts of the white canvas. The artist's signature is on the bottom left in the front. 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.
