'If colour could only paralyse the viewer's mind and imagination, it was here. Think of the opposite sensation. Of colours soft, somber, so filled with angst that it could be 'a bleeding piece of heart.' This is Rajendra Dhawan... In terms of colour this is a sensation that is resonant, far from impulsive art. What matters are the qualities of the paint and the act of painting itself. Dhawan's identity of abstraction is the artist expressing himself via colour and formlessness born out of the contemplated idiom. We are given the landscape by Dhawan as concrete emotions. This is not enthusiasm, but there is introspection and self-freedom.'

(Uma Nair, 'Sadhana', Rajendra Dhawan, exhibition catalogue, Bodhi Art, New Delhi, 2005, unpaginated)
