Duet art exhibition Obsession

Sheikh Arif Bulbon :
A duet painting exhibition of artists Sayed Fida Hossain and Sultan Ishtiaque titled Obsession is being held at  La Galerie of the Alliance Française
de Dhaka (AFD) in the city’s Dhanmondi area now. The exhibition was inaugurated on August 18.
Prof Jamal Ahmed, Department of Drawing and Painting, Faculty of Fine Arts, University of Dhaka graced the occasion as chief guest, while M K Aaref, Director, Edward M Kennedy Center (EMK Center) also joined the inaugural programme as guest of honour.
This exhibition is all about a journey. The journey begins within the artists themselves and then through their dreams, memories, perception, and
feelings amid the urban life, the
journey continues on. The journey acquires a voice of its own and tells
a story of being obsessed with the daily happenings. Bound by the mechanical life of tiresome drudgery,
the journey reveals about the
resultant suffocation.
Artists Sayed Fida Hossain and Sultan Ishtiaque believe that the inner existence that defines the journeyer does not want to be strangled by this suffocation,
and instead want to get obsessed with nature and be emancipated from the shackles of ennui.
Hossain’s segmented portrait series previously showed verisimilitude of his subjects and at the same time their fragility. His goal there was not to attain a good likeness, but to keep pushing the limits of realism. However, for this
exhibition Hossain is going to
introduce a completely different style that exhibits the surroundings or the landscapes along with the portrayal
of the subject’s obsessed mind.
Ishtiaque’s canvasses used to depict natural beauty with all its glory, but now his approach has evolved to include in those landscapes the compelling
presence of individuals and their dreams and hardships. A massive
shipyard now exhibits the raw
emotion Ishtiaque felt for the
shipyard workers who are in
imminent danger on account of
working under unsupervised and hazardous conditions. The exhibition will continue till August 30.  n
