Sharmin’s solo exhibition Expression of Life at AFD

  • Print


Sheikh Arif Bulbon :
The 2nd solo painting exhibition titled Expression of Life by artist Sharmin Zaman is going on at La Galerie, Alliance Française de Dhaka (AFD) in the capital’s Dhanmondi area.
Prof Dr Farzana Islam, Vice Chancellor of Jahangirnagar University, attended the opening ceremony as the chief guest while Mainul Abedin, Managing Director, Udeco Ltd, also attended the event as the special guest.
The centre of Sharmin Zaman's first solo painting exhibition was the women of Bangladesh. The lifelong struggle of a woman in our country to establish herself under adverse currents of her family or her society is a litany of ordeals that the artist wanted to depict in her canvas. But for this exhibition, the artist wanted to deconstruct her feelings as well as her own self as an artist.
Sharmin’s first and most driving reason to get acquainted with colours and brush was nature. Bangladesh is a land of colours and with the change of a season, these colours dance and melt into each other to create many new colours! That is why colours and textures preponderate her paintings.
The bark of an old tree or the surfaces of a decayed wall appear like a storybook to her. The stories transfer into small images and she tries to précis the ‘dancing of the colours.’ Thus the shapes and forms of the life around her get their shapes and forms based on how she felt it in her mind. That’s why the title of her second solo exhibition is Expression of life.
The colourless lives of many people in this country, however, are a stark contrast to the innumerable colors of the surrounding nature and culture. Sharmin Zaman’s paintings also embody that reality.
The exhibition will end on January 28.
