Selected Works: Raha Raissnia is an exhibition of Raissnia's dense explorations of light which manifest as works on paper, paintings and film installations. Described as a "night-painter," one that Milton Cruz situates as having a habit of "starting from the other side of things," Raissnia's works emerge from stillness, silence and darkness whilst operating at the fleeting moment of being half-awake, as light flutters between the hallucinatory state that is difficult to wrap around consciousness
