'As I began to paint, the landscapes came naturally and gradually, the outlines faded into abstracts... There is an enigmatic mystery about the inner life of a colour applied on canvas. It stands out of by itself in the beginning but slowly it starts building up relationships with other areas, other colours, and forms. This continues. There is a pause, a silence, an accident and in the end some sort of harmony.'
(Ram Kumar, Remembering Ram Kumar An Exhibition, exhibition catalogue, Saffronart, Mumbai, 2019, p. 63)
