Establishing a sense of connection between the painting and his audience, physical as well as mental is the ultimate aim of the artist, Hemraj. After all, it is the invisible emotional aura around the canvas that makes it a work of art. In the artist’s own words: “What we cannot convey to another person about a painting is what a painting is. It is the indescribable, the unspoken, and the hidden.” And perhaps, it is this mystery that makes unravelling HemrRaj’s pictorial world a true delight.
