Hema Thakur draws inspiration from traditional painting techniques and reinterprets them in a contemporary context. Her paintings make use of vivid colors, most commonly being warmer tones that evoke joy which surrounds her body of work and can be considered as a staple atmosphere in folklore pieces. This vibrant coloring is combined with a free figurative interpretation that focuses on stylized human figures as the protagonists, being painted in a way that resembles dark silhouettes. It is an element that starkly contrasts the bold chromatic compositions of the background and enhances the visual complexity of the work. These features are interwoven within her portfolio and offer to the public a unique alternate realism which is tranquil, serene and dream-like. Her themes focus on the natural world that surrounds us and underline the deep connection between humans and their environment, a link which is through her expression is highlighted as the constant of evolution, respect and harmony.
