ABOUT HER WORKS Deeply involved with the ruthless transience and violence of life, Anjana Mehra lets her work reflect the pain and grief of living Well in control of the medium she uses. Mehra is quite prepared to life the comforting veil of apathy and examine life and death with clinical attention. Her technical capability gives her work the strength to absorb the shock and tenor that accompanies social upheavals, psychopathic obsessions and the finality of death. She has to work all this out of her system and painting becomes the medium for catharsis. Well modulated but erie in their cold stillness, her present works deal with death, the finality of it all. In her abstract she seems to seek relief from the self imposed harshness of vision and lets a certain degree of hope emerge from the debris of experience. Mehra’s work is totally engaged with her environment. She remains chronicler of the life around her....Urban Signals Shifting Images, ExC Birla Academy of Art & Culture, 1996.
