山の女 - The Mountain Woman
Since 2004, Sanae has been living in Fish Hoek, Cape Town.
Everyday, rain or shine, she swims in the Ocean where The Mountain Woman was born.
The Mountain Woman is a series of works lovingly caressed out of the topography of Kaap Stad, deeply sensual paintings that reflect the resilience, timeless age and beauty of the Peninsula within the body of feminine wisdom.
The quirkily seductive figures celebrate daily miracles within the everyday landscapes.
The Mountain Woman will be accompanied by smiley Cape Dutch Houses – ceramic artworks, fresh out of kiln.
Sawada says about the character:”We all come from woman – mother links us to eternity - an ever first time / first time ever experience. Welcome home.”
