Chowdhury, eminent artist, eminent sculptor Ferdousi Priyabhasini, Moinuddin Khaled, critic and Gobinda Ray, principal, Dhaka Art College will be present during the inaugural session.
Md. Rashed Alam was born in 1988. He did his Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) from Dhaka Art college, National University. Md. Rashed Alam, in his first solo exhibition, will present three types of artwork that he experimented on: dualism paintings, sculptures and miniatures.
His dualism paintings will present the viewers with a unique view of the canvas and their relation from different perspectives. These paintings will showcase different chronological aspects if viewed from the left or the right side. Human figures and their inherent shapes have a great influence on his sculptures. A ‘sinfonia’ of age and different states is sometimes apparent in them. Alam will also exhibit some of his miniatures which came out from carving pencil leads, paintbrushes, or even a hand tool like hammer.
The artist presented portraits in the form of miniature sculpture. He carved the wooden handles of paint-brushes into the miniature portraits of Da Vinci, Matisse, Picasso, Dali and Orwell. These miniature sculptures, having been held atop the upright brushes, remind us of memorial sculptures. This is an aesthetic arrangement of paying tributes to the immortal artists from a young artist.
After the inaugural ceremony, the exhibition will be open to all till 15 April 2016.Visiting Hours: Monday to Thursday from 3 pm to 9 pm, Friday and Saturday (9 am to 12 noon and 5 pm to 8 pm). Closed on Sunday. – Alliance Francaise, Dhaka press release
