Alliance Francaise de Dhaka (AFD) is going to inaugurate a solo sculpture and drawing exhibition titled Gentle Grass by Anisuzzaman Faroque on Friday (19 August) at 5:30 pm at its La Galerie.
Prof. Hamiduzzaman Khan, eminent sculptor, prof. Lala Rukh Selim, Department of Sculpture, Faculty of Fine Art, University of Dhaka and prof. Manosh Chowdhury, Department of Anthropology, Faculty of Social Science, Jahangirnagar University will attend the event as the special guests.
S. M. Saha Anisuzzaman Faroque was born in Moheshkhali, Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh in 1993. An emerging visual artist who has mastered himself as a sculptor, his representation and portrait-modeling clay is one of his outstanding skills. In his practice, line drawing plays a vital role which he picks up from the urban lifestyle he incorporates in his creation of post-modern sculptures. He received his Bachelors degree in 2015 and his Masters degree in 2018 from the Department of Sculpture, Faculty of Fine Art, University of Dhaka.
His sculptures and artworks generate an aura that leaves the spectator spellbound. As his specialty, the sculptures are flawlessly crafted from different materials; and paintings with charcoal tell a different story. Anisuzzaman’s work depicts nature and has the ability to create an entirely different atmosphere. As Professor Lala Rukh Selim, Department of Sculpture, Charukala, DU has said, “his work oscillates rhythmically in water and air. The sensuous timing of metal sheet shapes and textures with rhythmic curves brings about the feeling of the sea and its waves and air. The lines and shapes create a flawless balance. The interaction between nature’s forces and organic structures is presented in Faroque’s work in a rhythmical manner.The fineness and sensitivity in using materials are distinctive features of Faroque’s sculptures. These sculptures have been crafted through metals. With that, the paintings done with charcoal reflect the intuition of his work.”
The exhibition will be open to all till Tuesday, 30 August.
Visiting Hours: Monday to Saturday from 3:00pm to 9:00pm. Closed on Sunday, read a media release.
