Hasan Raza’s work has evolved with the core research idea i.e. constructive growth and deconstruction. He is fascinated by the process/possibilities of growth.
His recent body of work is based on the visual of cityscapes, which connotes the structure of a city. It portrays the city which is formed by its civilian and urbane, rather than its concrete cement walls and iron rods. Other than that, the sufferings during the persuasion of the modern dreams or the curse of the standardised way of living or the measure of the standards of living, are the key points in his current body of work. He wants to provoke the feeling which is felt by every normal person of this nation.
The material which he uses is like a carbon print of the city. It is a construction material (called balli/shuttering wood). It is a kind of wood which has been used several times in construction projects around the city. It’s been nailed, re-nailed and reused again and again to support the ceiling floor pillars.
