I need to sculpt the plate, keep working on it until it has the richness that I want, the gentle rounded lightness in the dark shadows, all the tones of grey". STATEMENT "Most of my works are reflections of the environment and people around-the reality existent in their minds which is more real and meaningful for me than mere physical reality... Anupam Sud, Indian Printmaking Bombay, Jehangir Art Gallery publications, 1985 Today. "My work and interest have nothing to do with the social predicament. The presence of the figure is purely to establish the psychic relationships and balance between the animate and the inanimate. My involvement is thus basically with a sense of the gestalt that can be completely destroyed if in my place of concern with formal, rhythmic relationships, the observer substitutes a concern with a socio-economic commitment.
