Wings of Desire
Sheikh Arif Bulbon:
Artist Mrinal Kanti Das is also known for his sculptures and figurative works. To celebrate the International Mother’s Day, a solo exhibition of artist Mrinal Kanti Das titled “Wings of Desire” is being held at Dhaka Art Centre in the city's Dhanmondi area.
Basically the exhibition is paid tribute to motherhood through Mrinal’s artworks.
The eight-day long exhibition was inaugurated by the artist’s mother, while Foreign Minister Dr Dipu Moni and internationally renowned painter Monirul Islam were also present on the occasion as special guests.
In the exhibition, Mrinal Kanti has portrayed woman figures in abstract form to rejoice the spirit of motherhood.
His abstract works deal with every women emotion such as love, care, enthusiasm and boldness in different mediums such as sketches and colourful acrylic, pastel and watercolour paintings.
Mrinal’s an acrylic painting titled “Moonstruck” depicted the powerful characteristics of women. A white figure with wings articulates the strength of the hidden determination in women. Perhaps, the composition is depiction of artist’s personal perspective.
Another displayed acrylic on canvas piece titled “Duality” portrayed the complicated status of women minds through abstractions. The use of vivid colours such as red, green, yellow and black in the artistically rich composition, get applause from the viewers.
Therefore, Mrinal’s some other aesthetically rich canvases portrayed women’s beauty in midst with nature. Some of the artworks also demonstrated the inner soul and pain and sufferings of women.
However, an abstract black and white drawing on display portrayed similarity between a tree and a woman to articulate simplicity of both of them through use of very delicate lines.
The exhibition will end tomorrow. n
