Anupam Sud works mainly with prints. Her zinc plate pulsates with life in them suggesting contours of a sculpture, eventually hinting at the warmth of oils. On the whole, a controlled energy seems to significantly distinguish her work. Her works encapsulate the universal human conditions, the predicaments, the angst, and the agonies of being human. Also, her concerns are embedded in a compelling feminist vocabulary. Her subjects are often introspective and fatalistic - existing in a world that is falling apart. The artist’s works were influenced from varied fields that helped her enhance her art further. Having grown up under the guidance of Somnath Hore in New Delhi, as an artist she would closely relate to his works. She was also one of the founding members of the Group 8 that was formed in 1968. Her works have been part of several National and International exhibitions and she has conducted printmaking workshops in Canada and Japan. Anupam Sud, lives and works in New Delhi.
