Sheikh Arif Bulbon :
A group painting exhibition titled
Taste of Light and Darkness 2 is being held at the La Galerie of the Alliance Française de Dhaka (AFD) in the city’s Dhanmondi area now.  The Inaugural
ceremony of the exhibition was held
on February 26. Eminent artist Monirul Islam and eminent architect Shamsul Wares, participant artists, among others,  
were present at the inauguration
of the exhibition.
Taste of Light and Darkness returns with its second edition featuring artworks by ASM Rashidul Alam, Md Al-Akhir Sarker, Md Azmol Hosen, Sayed Fida Hossain, and Sultan Ishtiaque. This group exhibition is showcasing an expansive
portrayal of ordinary people’s
day-to-day life juxtaposed
on a vignette of light and darkness.
The artists have employed the
fundamental nature of contrasting these two elements: light as well as darkness and strove to unfold the exquisiteness of nature which, they found is both perpetual and ephemeral; and they ultimately ended up with compositions that are exemplary of the titular overtone. The artists found that the acceptability of light and darkness with each other is very synergetic as if they mimic the most primordial instincts of the human nature. Human beings and their expressions, the artists think, are
necessarily full of these two elements and their paintings only try
to encapsulate that.
Some of ASM Rashidul Alam's artworks represent his own thoughts. Every so often he feels amazed by love, affection,
bliss which elevates his childhood remembrance once again.  
Md Al- AkhirSarker wanted to dig out his inner feelings, very personal and free feelings, at the same time the very
traditional feelings of Bengali people in his paintings, where the tradition, religious behavior, thoughts, dreams, and the
entire Bengali character are present.  
Md Azmol Hosen’s paintings show the struggle of life. They make a story about the needs and dreams which may make the visitors happy or upset. Self-exploration is the internal history of Sayed Fida Hossain’s painting. We always are bound by our daily frustrated mechanical life where we lose our inner existence and sometimes
find ourselves through the intellection and consciousness. It’s a mysterious journey of the existence of human being and Fida would like to call it- ‘humanity.’  
The subjects of Sultan Istiaque's paintings are harsh realities of society, wrecked houses, historical buildings, large-sized ships of the Buriganga River, labourers
and their daily chores, awaiting boatmen in the bright lights, downtrodden people and their regular lives.
The exhibition will continue
till March 8. n
