Ruposhi Bangla (The Beauteous Bangal)

Sheikh Arif Bulbon :
The solo painting exhibition by Golam Mohammed Joarder titled ‘Ruposhi Bangla’ (The Beauteous Bangal) was held at La Galerie of the Alliance Française de Dhaka (AFD) in the city’s Dhanmondi area from July 6 to 17.
Eminent artist Prof Samarjit Roy Chowdhury inaugurated the exhibition as the chief guest.
Golam Mohammed Joarder, who holds a BFA from the Faculty of Fine Arts, University of Dhaka and has two published novels under his illustrious belt, found the ‘nature’ as his muse for this painting exhibition.
The ‘nature’ in his paintings, he states, consists of man and man's circumstances.
To him these two elements render as imaginal as well as abstract in composition.
Joarder prefers the abstractionism, as to him the concrete form is 2-dimensional - either true or fake.
The abstractionism, however, is open-ended, interpretable to the observer - one either understands a great deal from it or not.
Joarder keeps that observer-to-be in his mind. His canvasses thus invite colours that are, by his own account, gravitative. n
