A R Rumey's Mythical Mind

  • Print


Sheikh Arif Bulbon :
Our tormented and turbulent society is going through an agonised phase.
It lacks wisdom, direction, vision, morality, and humanity; whereas our past holds our experiences, knowledge, inspiration, and profundity. The artist sees himself as a lonesome diver into his scarred soul and from there he creates and dissolves the unreal boundaries between past, present and future.
Rumy likes to portray a reality with which the viewers may joyfully infuse themselves and would achieve the ability to see the completeness and openness between the boundaries of division, diversion and diversity.
A solo art exhibition titled
Mythical Mind by artist A R Rumy
was held at La Galerie of the Alliance Française de Dhaka (AFD)
in the city’s Dhanmondi area.
Zunaid Ahmed Palak, State Minister for the Ministry of Information and Communication Technology (ICT),
Dr Zaid Bakht, Chairman of Agrani Bank Ltd, Arvi Ahmed, leadership
consultant and researcher and Shameem Ahsan, Director of Federation of Bangladesh Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FBCCI), among others, were present at the inaugural
ceremony of the exhibition.
A R Rumy believes love is the central voice which has been transformed from a path of pain, cruelty, brutality,
absurdity. The mythical mind holds all the knowledge but it has the soulful intention to discover and reveal what is true and worthy. It is imbued with the beauty, puzzle and mystery in one hand; yet open to introspect, examine and question in and outside, on the other.
Our storms are real, but it is to be dealt with passion, courage, tears, sweat, and fire. Following that Rumy would like to open the gate of thoughts,
questions and answers, deciphering the mythical mind with artworks that connect, unite, and can instill a serenade of universal echoes in the heart
of any rebellion.
A R Rumywas born in Natore in 1979. He did his BFA from Rajshahi University and MFA from University of Development Alternative. He is
currently working as an Assistant Professor at Faculty of Fine Arts, University of Development Alternative.
In 2006, he did his first solo at Chuwa Gallery in Tokyo, Japan. Besides, he also participated in a number of group art exhibitions in home and abroad.  n
