For Raza, colour black held immense meaning and potential. To him, it was the ‘mother colour’ from which all other hues were born. The upper half of this work has a black bindu and areas around it represent five fundamental elements of nature, and their equal divisions represent the balance in the nature.
The lower half of the canvas represents the zenith of Raza’s engagement with gestural brushwork and the primary palette that expressed the earthiness of his native land. Here, the yellows and greens along with black and white reflect the Central Indian landscape that was Raza’s home for many years, where he spent most of his childhood. The format of this work, is also symbolic of one exploring the depths of the cosmos, yet having a strong foothold to their roots and memories.
