There are budding talents in the filed of fine arts in the country. The artists who are newly completed their academic career or who are waiting to complete their study are also doing well like their senior fellows. With this continuation a group art exhibition of five recently graduated students of the Faculty of Fine Arts of Dhaka University was held at Zainul Gallery under the title of “Revise.”
Basically this title of the exhibition entails the participants’ endeavours to pay a flashback of their previous four-year curriculum activities through a total of more than 40 artworks.
The participant artists of the week-long exhibition were - Sumon Kumar Saha (from Drawing and Painting Department), Asrafa Siddiqua (from Oriental Art Department), Shadia Sharmin and Shymal Sutradhar (from Crafts Department) and Kohenoor Akter Bithee (from Printmaking Department).
Five students of four departments of the Faculty of Fine Arts of Dhaka University done their works on display mainly in watercolour, woodcut, lithograph, aquatint, mixed media, metal and tapestry formats.
Most of the artworks those were on display at the exhibition demonstrated the participant artists’ youthful zeal to excavate into an imaginary world. Their artworks addressed contemporary issues and expressing those on diverse mediums.
All the nine works of Shymal Sutradhar were metal works including “King”, “Queen” and a series titled “Konya.” His works earned visitors acclaims.
On the other hand, Kohenoor Akter Bithee’s realistic paintings and Sumon Kumar Saha’s sketches on display also proved their artistic skills and venture.
Asrafa Siddiqua’s painting “Oyster Woman” portrayed oysters to form the image of a woman, while the title “Flower of Bottle-gourd” represented colourful flowers for indicating her journey in surrealism.
Her other solid watercolour composition done using wash-technique features showcased her rich sense of proportion in oriental art.
Another special feature of the exhibition was Shadia Sharmin’s aesthetically rich tapestry work. The tapestry work titled “The Mask” depicted a human face done with wool and jute fibres adorned with earthen ornaments.
However, Shadia’s metal works on historical characters also attained attraction to the viewers.
