Let the path be unknown; let the heart be left in solitude.
From the 1960s and early 70s, when he was nearing fifty, Raza’s works were impregnated with a sense of double identity. Two distinct parts to this vertical work emphasize the demarcation of two divided spaces in the mind.

The lower half of this work opens up to almost another world – exploding into colours, worked in ochres, greens, blues and crimson red, the treatment largely being gestural brushwork.
