Sudhi Ranjan Bhushan`s most substantial works - paintings,
sculptures, collages and screen prints bears the imprint
of an intense and keen understanding of the medium.
They are the result of a mind, which has strong natural
and unmixed non-figurative inclinations. Unlike his
noted contemporaries, Bhusan wants to escape the reality
without any built in philosophical appendix to his works.
He doesnot offer any philosophical quiz to justify the
escape. Nor does he pretend to solve some `technical`
problems with high-brow seriousness. Yet, in this luminous
bid for escape, one can detect the restless shadow of
the reality he wanted to flee. His use of tear - sheets
of corrugated paper tells us of darker things in sombre,
