In his sculptures, installations, and photographs, Lahore-based artist Rashid Rana explores the impact of globalization and media on South Asian life and identity. Rana's large-scale photographs, which he describes as "unpacked abstraction," appear as non-representative, geometric compositions from afar but up close, they are revealed to comprise thousands of content-specific images. Similarly playing with the relationship between part and whole, semblance and reality, the artist's "Books" sculptures use pixelated prints on aluminum blocks to generate what looks like stacks of books.
