moreNaina Kanodia (India: 1950) is a major presence in the Indian art world. She works in the L' Art Naif style pioneered by Henri Rousseau and uses it to create a dialogue between millenniums-old Indian culture and contemporary life in South Asia. The dazzling colors and dizzying patterns never overwhelm the honest humanity of her subjects who are the focus of her work.
"Dance Troupe" (1993) shows a group of acrobatic monkeys, and a trained goat, in an urban square. The monkeys are in western clothes while the people (except one) are in South Asian garb. They are surrounded by brightly painted colonial architecture, and a dark stone church extreme left. The cricket bat, cigarette and bicycle also refer the the imperialist past. The diagonal grade of the cobblestones that form the predominant background pattern, along with the lack of perspective, throws the whole composition off kilter to match the skewed themes.
Her biography from the Archer Art Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Indian Art:
Born in 1950, grew up in Delhi, graduating from Lady Shri Ram College in Economics (Hons) winning the National Scholarship of the Government of India. An economist turned painter, Naina is entirely a self-taught artist except for a year’s apprenticeship with Anjolie Ela Menon. She held her first solo show in Mumbai at the Cymroza Art Gallery and in Delhi at the Lalit Kala Academy in 1986. She has several solo exhibitions in India and few shows abroad. Naina has also participated in over twenty group and charity exhibitions in different parts of India and the world, beside her participation in workshops and art camps. Amongst her important exhibitions are the shows held at the Jehangir art gallery, Mumbai in 1991, at Sridharani in 1994, at ARKS gallery London in 1997 and at MIDAN Musee International d’art naïf. Paris. She lives and works in Mumbai.
