Says noted Art Critic Johny ML, “Hailed as one of the prominent contemporary Indian sculptors who is devoted to the medium of bronze Kansodaria prefers a narrative style, though simple in theme has all the complexities of making for he uses the lost wax process. He works like a dexterous film-maker who handles all the major departments in filmmaking a la master, Satyajit Ray. The simplicity of his choicest themes is not affected, however, the more one looks at his works the more one realizes how he transforms the perceived realities into a fantastic reality, taking him into a wonderland where time and language assume surreal dimensions.”
