Nargis Poly’s The Skin of a Living Thought

  • Print


Sheikh Arif Bulbon :
The inaugural ceremony of the solo painting exhibition of artist Nargis Poly titled The Skin of a Living Thought was held at
La Galerie of the Alliance Française de Dhaka (AFD) in the city’s Dhanmondi area recently.
Eminent artist Mustafa Manwar inaugurated the
exhibition as the chief guest. Prof Dr Syed Monzoorul Islam, academic and writer, joined the inaugural programme as the guest of honour while architect and urban expert Dr Adnan Morshed also attended as
the special guest.
Nargis Poly’s paintings bear in mind the conviction that the essence of a painting can vary greatly in colour and content from one viewer’s perspective
to another’s. Poly wants to call it, ‘unfolding the skin of a living thought.’ Her inquisitive mind explores diverse creative
and intellectual avenues never retracting from experimenting
in her own style.
Accordingly, the paintings avow Poly's analytical mind as well as her artistic ethos.
She never loses sight of the snowball effect of paintings
pre-empting corruption and social injustice. And with a clear understanding of the surroundings, her subject choices along with the media selections become coherent to the observer.
The exhibition will continue
till August 16. n
