‘The Thousand Faces of Eve’ – A series by Raja Changez Sultan on exhibit at the Full circle gallery.
According to the description provided by the gallery, the ‘series celebrates the moods and nuances of women as visible in their faces’. While this is correct, perhaps the more noticeable feature of Raja Changez Sultan’s artworks is that through these faces (or is it only one face?) he at the same time is making an attempt to show what’s not ‘visible’. This is why the element of murkiness or blurriness never disappears from the paintings and turns the series into a mystery of sorts. By doing that he achieves the higher aim of making his artworks aesthetically all the more appealing.
The exhibition will continue until March 29. (Photos by Eefa Khalid, Text by Peerzada Salman)
