Ram Kumar`s recent works are no longer evocations of any single, recognizable terrain. Yet, his paintings are not abstract compositions. Ram Kumar`s creations continue to harbor a connection with the world outside the canvas. A complicated enmeshing of different places visited and remembered, this painting is an intermingling of sites, re-structured through the disorientating influences of memory and nostalgia. "His `abstractions` are not flights into the `unknown`, but like shifting beams of light they move, passing through the entire space of the painting, from one segment of reality to another, uncovering the hidden relations." (p. 27, Nirmal Verma, "From Solitude to Salvation", Ram Kumar: A Journey Within, ed. Gagan Gill, Vadehra Art Gallery, 1996)
