My work explores a lot of contemporary ideas about surface as well as space. I am a bit of a perfectionist, so I like to be in control of it all when I draw and render images; observing all the details as important as it is to create the required expression. In the entire process, I do consider building and creating tension between shape and color, opening the picture plain in a dynamic way since it is truly all about building relationships on the picture plane that create believable spaces.
However it is not only the surface value of images that I am interested in, but far more. My sketchbook travels with me, where ever I go. Hence, I have a tendency to revisit and return to familiar places, working on the same ideas over and over again, discovering and rediscovering, covering and uncovering. It continues to be a constant process for me because it is never the same….and yet it is!
Raza Ur Rehman
Love is all
Love is that which makes the bitter sweet
Love is that which charms leaden sheet
Into a solid plate of gold. Love can
Heal a wound that cure the ailing man
Love can be kind or harsh, it can expose
The cruel thorn pretending its rose
Love, the acid that can smelt a stone
It is the spell that makes the sun postpone
Its tryst with dawn. It can delay the light
And grant the lovers that much more of night
Through love the healer resurrect the dead
And bids sofia to walk with her bed
I had to bring the healer Issah in
God’s love sent him to forgive all sin
Embrace God’s love and come to him alone
And make the scaffold of this world
Love knows no king, no slave, no thief, no saint
Love grabs the worst and best without restrain
Love bears us up to answer heaven’s call
Would you have guessed he summons
One and all?
My all work is based on this poem of rumi – RAZA UR REHMAN
