SH RAZA | Aarambh
22 February - 18 March, 2015 | D-40 Defence Colony, New Delhi 110024
Aarambh, SH Raza’s latest solo show from 22nd February to 18th March, 2015. Created between 2014 and 2015, this series of new work is a presentation of a number of luminous works that the master has been painting recently. It coincides with his completion of 93 years of age and almost 75 years of ceaseless art.
As Sayed Haider Raza turns 93 this year, his creative energy, passion for colour and its immense possibilities, and his relentless search for spiritual form continue to reach new statures. He has a huge reputation as a master colourist who has explored in visual terms some metaphysical concepts about the universe, nature, male-female energies, environment etc. His iconic Bindu remains at the centre of both his plastic imagination and spiritual quest. Many of the new works created in 2014-15 reveal a master making new discoveries and forging new combinations embodying in fresh ways his enduring vision of the world and art. For him art is the whole world and, by the same token, the whole world is art.
