Serengeti SunsetPaintings & Sculptureby Jonathan Sanders
From my early childhood Ive had a fascination with Africa and its wildlife, a fascination that began with books about the continent and its inhabitants. The more I read and the more images I saw, the more I wanted to be a part of it, culminating in childhood dream of becoming a gamekeeper. My dream of visiting the continent was fulfilled some 25 years ago when I first visited East Africa but upon seeing my first wild animals my instinct was to conserve these majestic creatures by capturing their power and beauty in paintings and sketches.
The majority of the pages of my first sketchbook were covered in drawings of the rhino. This ancient beast fascinated me with its unique size, power and prehistoric
appearance and their sheer physical presence were my inspiration for the bronze sculptures that are now such an important part of my artistic life.
The people, the landscape and the animals of Africa are my passion and I am delighted to be able to share this with you at this exhibition.
