In Paramjit Singh's resplendent landscapes there is always an air of mystery which haunts and beckons, making the viewer's experience spiritual and full of magic at the same time. The artist's own journey through such magical pathways began in the 1950s when he first started painting. With time, landscape elements which had made an appearance very early on began to dominate his art, till the ideal landscape seen with the mind's eye was evoked to perfection in canvas after canvas. With titles like Monsoon Light, Red in the Woods, Evining Light and Lakes, these canvases throw open to the viewer and collector an exquisite melange of colour, light, and the fragrance of the vibrant countryside. In this present volume, noted art critic, Ella Datta, familiarises the reader and art lover with details of the veteran artist's life, the influences which shaped his art, and the streams of thought which gave substance to the mystical landscapes that he is renowned for.
