    "As I painted, I found shapes thrusting upwards like plants or mushrooms, shapes that virtually exploded into life. This convulsive element stimulated and excited me, and more drawings and paintings magically materialized." (Artist Statement, Avinash Chandra, exhibition catalogue, Rose Fried Gallery, New York, October-November 1968)
