'The fact that our painters were blind to the conceptual achievements of miniature, tantric and folk art in India, that they were unresponsive to the 'noumenous' possibilities of geometric space organisation in Jain miniatures, the vibrational psychedelic intent of Tantric painting using differences in colour wave-length the function of colour geometry in creating infinite, total space, the anthropomorphic imagination functioning in our folk art, the interpenetration, the interchangeability and the interdependence of the representational, the psychosymbolic manifestation of the incidental as eternal - all this points to the criminal subservience of our movement to the analytical tradition of the modern movement in Western art.' (Jagdish Swaminathan, 'The Cube and the Rectangle', Lalit Kala Contemporary 40, New Delhi, March 1995, p. 22)
