Catalogue Note


"The upheavals during the revolution in Paris of 1968, the crowds of people marching, gathering and talking influenced this work. This was the first time I completely carved to the very depth of the metal using mechanical and stone grinders, as if I was carving stone in the round. To increase the feeling of depth I used the reverse process of printing colours by superimposing them." (K. Reddy quoted in Exhibition catalogue, Krishna Reddy: A Retrospective, Bronx Museum of the Arts, New York, 1981, p. 70)
