“Mrittika Maya / Earthen Affection” the second solo painting exhibition of artist Samar Majumder at La Galerie of Alliance Française, Dhaka on Friday. Prof. Nazrul Islam, University of Dhaka, graced the occasion as the chief guest while eminent art critic Prof. Moinuddin Khaled was present as the special guest.
Samar Majumder is a multiple award-winning artist. Born in 1957, Majumder has been creating artworks for more than thirty years now.
About his second exhibition, the artist says: ‘I find pleasure in expressing myself through paintings. Across the canvasses, I feel the most spontaneity in articulating my thoughts. My country, my motherland Bangladesh is my greatest muse. I am an offspring of this remarkable land and on her soil,
I sense a repose that drives me, empowers me to encase the beauty I see around me. My feelings of affection, fondness, protest or sadness — everything is deeply amalgamated with Bangladesh. This interrelation, simple and lucid, is what I depict in my paintings and that I believe, becomes associable to the viewers. This is my second solo exhibition which will feature paintings that I have created over the course of last three years.’
The exhibition will be open to all until Thursday, 26 October 2017 at La Galerie, Alliance Française de Dhaka. Visiting Hours: Monday to Thursday from 3 pm to 9 pm, Friday and Saturday (9 am to12 noon and 5 pm to 8 pm). Closed on Sunday. AF, Dhaka press release
