The beginning of the 1970s marked the deconstructionist phase of Ram Kumar's dialogue with abstraction. Elements of the landscape were pared down to angular prismatic forms which created their own architecture. Sloping, geometric diagonals dissolve and reemerge at various angles, creating a drifting universe that is in constant flux. These features remain integral to the visual vocabulary that the artist employs in his current work.
In the words of Ranjit Hoskote, this period of his work is, 'stripped of sentiment and freed from the burden of description, the landscape evolved into a grand metaphor, a crucible of meterological energies, a dynamic equilibrium poised among tectonic forces of imperious majesty.' (Ram Kumar: A Journey Within, Vadehra Art Gallery, 1996).
