"It is often easier to move sideways than up or down! My worst enemies are my admirers - trapping me within the now recognizable style of my own making."
Throughout her career as a painter, Anjolie Ela Menon has regularly re-envisioned her role as an artist. The body of work she has produced bears testament to her disdain for categorization.
In 1960, at the age of twenty, Menon departed from India to study art in France where she was influenced by the techniques of the medieval Christian artists. Menon developed her iconography of distance and loss in her later works through her thematic depiction of black crows, empty chairs, windows and hidden figures; in the process establishing herself internationally as an artist of note.
