Sheikh Arif Bulbon :
A group art exhibition titled To the Root of Art will begin at La Galerie of the Alliance Francaise de Dhaka in the city’s Dhanmondi area today. Thirty artworks of different artists will put on display in the exhibition. These works are acrylic on canvas, watercolour, charcoal media, terra cotta and acrylic on paper.
Artists Laila Sharmeen, Md Tayabuzzaman Khan Topu, Mini Karim, Samiran Chowdhury and Zebun Nahar Nayem applied their experiences and also depicted overwhelming portraits on their canvases.
Views through their eyes life, nature, man and woman have gained momentum driven by concepts which again being inspired in different shape, street of country, society and people in a manner creating and worth appreciating. But, not only skilled regarded to the yardstick for evaluation of an artist. A thing that matters significant is how much it gets bite by heart.
Laila Sharmeen seeks solace in the beauty and harmony of nature. Her Mantra for peace and serenity in this world of unrest is Datta Dayadvam Damyata. Through painting she urges all to come back from the materialistic greed and estrangement of modern human being. Her work shows a modernist preoccupation with time, flux, the loss of a centre and disappearance of faith and a concern for beauty and truth, imagination and solitude.
Through terra-cotta media Topu wants to dig out his inner feelings, very personal and free feelings, at the same time the very traditional feelings of Bangalee people in his artworks, where human being, nature and animal are present.
Some of Mini Karim’s artworks represent her own thoughts. Every so often she feels amazed by love of nature, which elevates her to swim in the nature. Bright colours have been used in her artworks to create a distinctive tone.
There is a kind of romanticism in Samiran’s paintings and thus he loves to paint for all. Through his paintings, Samiran seeks to convey the message that he is becoming more innovative, using his space to increasingly interact with his colours and forms.
Zebun Nahar Nayem believes it is long overdue to stop putting the stereotypes Weaker-Bodied or The Gentler Sex in the same line with women. She posits that the essence of women is about power and strength. She implores women to seek this defining power within themselves and be enlightened. Zebun says women, exactly like the women she paints on her canvases, are champions.
The exhibition will continue till October 10.
