Eminent artist Mustafa Manwar going round after inaugurating the solo painting exhibition of artist Nargis Poly titled "The Skin of a Living Thought" on August 4 at La Galerie, Alliance Française de Dhaka
: The inaugural ceremony of the solo painting exhibition of artist Nargis Poly titled "The Skin of a Living Thought" began at La Galerie, Alliance Française de Dhaka on August 4.
Eminent artist Mustafa Manwar graced the occasion as the chief guest. Prof Dr Syed Manzoorul Islam, academic and writer joined the inaugural programme as the guest of honour while architect and urbanist Dr Adnan Morshed attended as the special guest.
Nargis Poly's paintings bear in mind the conviction that the essence of a painting can vary greatly in colour and content from one viewer's perspective to another's. Poly wants to call it, "unfolding the skin of a living thought". Her inquisitive mind explores diverse creative and intellectual avenues never retracting from experimenting in her own style.
Accordingly, the paintings avow Poly's analytical mind as well as her artistic ethos. She never loses sight of the snowball effect of paintings pre-empting corruption and social injustice. And with a clear understanding of the surroundings, her subject choices along with the media selections become coherent to the observer.
