'He is engaged with the concept of space. Reddappa Naidu in his 'Deity' pictures interprets space as that which is permeated by the presence of an anthropomorphic divinity... he has begun to see space as that which a live being is one with. This state of oneness has a perfectly spontaneous inner formation which provides the ground for all that is present and possible.' (Joseph James, 'Metaphysical Content in Recent Contemporary Indian Painting', Lalit Kala Contemporary 12 & 13, April-September 1971, p. 31)
