This interplay of visual elements signifies the vast spectrum of emotions and expressions she seeks to convey. Menon’s artwork has garnered international recognition, with her pieces showcased on prestigious platforms in Indonesia, India, Italy, Japan, Pakistan, Singapore, and Thailand. Notably, her talent was acknowledged with an Honourable Award from the International Watercolour Society during its 2018 International Watercolour Biennale.
Her creations have found homes in private collections across the globe, including in countries such as India, Indonesia, Germany, Norway, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Thailand, US and her home country of Malaysia. Through her art, Rekha Menon continues to explore the depths of human emotion and the hidden landscapes of the mind.
