The artist commenting on 3 Blind Bulbs II, 2006, that were exhibited at L'art a la plage, Ramatuelle, France, states "I wanted my three bulbs to look like residue from the sea, to be placed as if they had randomly floated to the shore. What interests me most when I scale up an object is that the same objects which we use and take for granted in normal life suddenly demand our attention, the moment they are magnified to a great size." (ibid. p. 482).
Unlike Pop artist Claes Oldenburg, whose monumental sculptures of everyday objects was born of mirth and playfulness to chisel away at society's solemnity, Sunil Gawde's monumental sculptures are inherently serious.
