Mohammad Rawas stands today at the peak of an outstanding artistic career. Those familiar with his work will welcome this volume as a permanent source of reference, while those encountering the artist for the first time can enjoy an introduction to his work in the 160 reproductions presented here. In the accompanying text, the artist himself provides a fascinating insight into his life and work, his compositional techniques and sources of inspiration. A painting by Rawas offers a complex visual and conceptual experience. Constructing our own shifting narratives around the diverse elements of his paintings, we also explore the thought processes that led the artist to assemble these particular groups of images to form his original statements.
