Even Red Can Be Sad

An intricately mosaicked portrait of Ram Kumar at home and in the studio, Even Red Can Be Sad is so steeped in the nonagenarian artist’s writings and paintings as to seem a kind of secondhand self-portrait. Working from multiple streams of text and image, Dutta finds an apt muse for his own prismatic style in Kumar’s multidisciplinary talent.
