Gender parity has concerned Anupam Sud through much of her career, something she has questioned through her work, even though hers has never been a shrill voice as much as an inquisitorial one. Primarily a printmaker, her paintings are rarer to find. In this painting, a pivotal scene from a wedding, she pits her protagonists thoughtfully together. Neither glances at the other as they enact the rituals that will bind them together, each one removed to an individual space as they wonder what their journey together as a couple holds for them. A levitating face behind the bride dislocated from its body seems like a mask, not dissimilar to the ones the couple wear as they observe their wedding rites.
