Anjolie Ela Menon returns after a gap of five years with a landmark collection of her recent works. Many of these paintingscan be deemedto be ‘Vintage Menon’, with the stronguse of iconography, layered surfaces and the metaphorical use of motif. What is clearly noticeable in this exhibition is that Menon has come back with greater maturity while retaining the dynamism that has defined her work. Yet again the artist’s unique and inimitable technique and style, especially of her luminous oils, makes her work stand apart from so many of her contemporaries, an amalgam of her innovative experiments with thewell known attributes of her inimitable oeuvre. The works in this  show include paintings from her ‘Divine Mother’ series.Padmashree Anjolie Ela Menon is among India’s leading contemporary artists, and has created a name for herself in the domestic as well as international art scene. Her works in oil and mixed media are a part of significant museum, private and corporate collections across the globe and she has done several murals in public spaces. After a brief spell at the JJ School of Art Mumbai and a degree from the Delhi University she won a French government scholarship to the Ecole Des Beaux Arts to study fresco in Paris. Menon has held 48 solo exhibitions including  retrospectives at the Lalit Kala Akademi and National Gallery of Modern Art, Mumbai. Her work hangs in major museum and private collections globally.  Three books and several films have been made on her life and work. The latest volume entitled Anjolie Ela Menon: Through the Patina covers Menon’s work in public and private collections over 55 working years and a portfolio on her has been published by Lalit Kala Akademi.  A book about her work accompanied her solo exhibition at the Asian Art Museum San Francisco which accessioned her seminal work titled Yatra. She was awarded the Chevalier des Arts et des Letters by the French Government and the Padmashree by the government of India  in recognition for her contribution to Indian art.  She has now been awarded the Life  Time Achievement Award of the Delhi Government for 2013.
