Recent Paintings of Hemraj


This comes to my mind when I look at the paintings of Hem Raj. His paintings help us to reach a point of thinking through meditation,
a point of wordless and unintellectual understanding, which lie behind signs and symbols. His paintings lead us on a kind of tantric path,
a path that combines meditation with consciousness. Meditation, the means of reaching a world beyond thinking, is an important concern
of the artist. His paintings are meant to bring piece for the onlooker and the painter. They should be a sublime representation of feeling
beyond thinking. Thus you could attain “Anand”, eternal bliss, spiritual joy. Then only you could reach “anyatra dharmad anyatra adharmat”,
an ex-pression from the Upanishads that was used by Nietzsche for his highly influental work “Jenseits von Gut und Böse” (Beyond good and evil).
