For Broota, the Eternal is composed of minute instances and it is a continuous process of revelation and realization. In a perfect marriage of form and content, Broota`s approach to his craft unfolds within the context of his thematic explorations. In a subtle reversal of conventional methods of artistic creation, Broota does not impose his images onto the pictorial space. Instead, his nick-blade technique painstakingly evacuates his motifs from the depths of the pre-painted canvas.

Here, the face of the man emerges, eerily illumined, from the dark gloom of his surroundings. "Broota`s central subject is man, through whose tensions and aspirations, lusts and endeavors, the greater issues of life are mediated. God is indifferent or distant, the human `other` is absent; the solitary male becomes the site for conflict and resolution." (p. 23, G. Sinha, "Edge of the Precipice: The Art of Rameshwar Broota", Rameshwar Broota`s exhibition catalogue held at Shridharni Gallery, 2001)
