The watercolour on paper artwork depicts the rough life of the fishermen. The artist highlights the daily chores of the fishermen and how they spend weeks on the sea, work in blistering cold rain and have a risky job. They earn only as much as they bring in. Getting a good catch is just half the story; the real struggle begins at the shore. Separating the big from the small, loading and unloading of the fish for the market. And lastly getting a good value for all the hard work. A stressful life you might say. Born and brought up along the coastal line, the artist always had been charmed by the beauty of the sea and the life around it. He aims to bring alive a day-to-day life of fisherman: “What better medium than Watercolour, for the life whose life depends on the highs and lows of the sea.”
Rajshekhar's painting emphasize the rooted, intimate biological unity of man and nature. In a charmingly black-ink technique, including pen hatching, spots and dots as well as occasional smudging, he expresses successfully his inner world, hovering between imagination and reality. At times Rajshekhar's black pen and ink paintings unveil a prehistorical world. A different theme of Rajshekhar's symbolism places the illuminated fire-fly as central element of the composition. With this element he brightens up a world of fantasy. The fire-fly and some figures, freely floating in space are delicately illuminated as a vibrating neon light.The dense vegetation in the background remains mysteriously in the dark. The meaning remains open to the viewer but the atmosphere of the images are of beauty and delicacy, as in a wonderful dream. Being quite recent work, Rajshekhar gives evidence of enriched inspiration.
