About Sarah Menelaus
The prints and paintings of Sarah Menelaus demonstrate the gestural factor aesthetic principle to perfection. The dynamism of her construction is in wonderful lyrical accord with the image.
It is clear that the form; be it cattle, horses, humans or landscape itself are the inspiration and subject of Sarah’s carefully considered practise. Her distinctive mark making and textural surfaces of her drawing, painting, sculpture and printmaking make Sarah’s work very recognisable and allow the continuing growth and longevity of her practise.
Menelaus doesn’t do bravura for style’s sake but to forge an accord between the built image and perception.
