Art Musings is presenting a solo exhibition by acclaimed artist Anjolie Ela Menon from 26 November – 31 December ’15. The show features recent works of oil on Masonite board. Anjolie is showcasing in Mumbai after a gap of 9 years, her last solo exhibition was held in Mumbai with Art Musings in 2006.
Over a journey that spans five decades and has taken her across the globe, Menon’s art has incorporated the resonances of many schools, diverse cultures. The present suite of paintings sees the artist’s revisit some of her favoured motifs. Menon charges her figures with the mandate of their hybrid identity. Her figures seem always like avatars travelling between the way stations of a quest. They carry within them the residues of other times, other civilizations, other ways of looking at the human form and preserving it for posterity, whether as a secular image or a votive icon.
