ln rana 3Style
Subtle yet vibrant and energetic, Rana’s paintings express an emerging independence of spirit with an almost dream like view, he brings you in and exposes you to intimate feelings and moods. The energy of forms and colors excite the mind and articulate his individual visions. His paintings reveal an extraordinary perspective sense which is profoundly individual perception yet global in subject, dwelling in some undefined geometric lines and contours of feminine forms in interiors and landscape, each of her own world.
Bold and suggestive, emotional and powerful, his art takes you on a profoundly personal journey. His imagery suggests stories with beginnings but no definitive end. Heavy lines and selective color scheme dictate the mood of his work and keep pulling you inside for another look. He has the rare ability to grasp the essence of his vision in a way that is always interesting and unexpected- a truly talented expressionist! His exhibition of paintings held at Jehangir Art Gallery in Mumbai- 2007 named ‘Feminine enigma’ beautifully portray the sensuality and mystical charm of a female. He has captured the aspirations, dreams, physical exploration of body along with the emotive state that drives a woman’s actions in paintings titled- ‘Rejuvanation’, ’Kite of Hope’, ‘Search of Peace’ , ‘Classic bath’.

“ I attempt breaking down life to its visual essentials- the charisma of a woman, her relationships, fantasies that add so much of tone, colour, balance and movement-show positive perspective of life. I like capturing the essence of her beauty and acquisition sense which builds a story around her”, says the mature artist. His paintings dipped in the shade of earthy colors like crimson, ochre, yellow and Indian red add a monochromatic overtone that empowers the message of being rooted to the family values, manners ,parental roots that accentuate love, bonding and care which is depicted in his works like-‘ family portrait’, ’Valentine package’ and ‘Line of control’.
