TOGETHER 2023 – AN EXHIBITION OF DRAWING, PAINTINGS, PRINTS, CERAMICS AND SCULPTURES BY 92 ARTISTS FROM DELHI /
The exhibition – TOGETHER 2023 is an exhibition of Drawing, Paintings, Prints, Ceramics and sculptures by 92 artists from Delhi and is on show at Art Gallery 1-4 & Foyer, Lalit Kala Akademi, Rabindra Bhawan, New Delhi.
“Picasso somewhere stated – It took me three years to paint like Raffle but a lifetime to paint like a child.
It seems that through his peek-a-boo strokes Hemraj is playing between the dark patchy one’s hiding partially behind the transparent roller strokes that leave it partially mystified and the rest beckoning towards itself to be unearthed. Synonymous with the dynamics of life: playing peek-a-boo with the ever lifting veil to be overtaken by renewed and more subtle one’s!
Then those thick dots effectively consciously and simultaneously unconsciously placing themselves again in a typical childlike manner declare Hemraj’s boldness of experimentation with unhesitant demeanor”.
“If art is a means to experience freedom and express the freedom, Hemraj must be leaping in that very zone.
For there is bold impudence, nerve and sassiness of a child in there. With adamance and strong headedness, the child in him at play, in that very exploration verging on to the mystery that is more loud in some than others that are pure leisure!,” curator narrates about the works of renowned artist Hemraj.
The colourful group show of drawing, paintings, prints, ceramics and sculptures by famous artists will continue till 15 January 2023.
