D. L. N Reddy’s compositions often show myriad strokes of subdued hues tinkering with the ‘real’ in order to attain mysterious forms. The critical engagement with forms spawns a sublime sense generating ambiguous meanings. Undoubtedly, his versatile character makes him a distinct artist in his long artistic career as he works with variety of mediums including printmaking, painting and sculpture. Reddy’s paintings and etchings resonate a sort of sensuousness as the expressionistic figures mostly women sitting, reclining and staring at the onlooker reverberate the eccentric mood merging in and negotiating with space and volume. He produces a kind of sensuality, where his nudes demonstrate fetish raw physicality as if they are carved out of the canvas. The bifurcated cubistic faces and a strong delineation become his signature style. With limited lines and means, he manages to create effects and moods of the environment rather than generating infinite meanings.
