Power of Pain & Pathos, the first solo art exhibition by Priti Ali at Indira Gandhi Culture Centre at Gulshan, concluded on Thursday.
A large number of art aficionados from across the city visited the exhibition on the closing day of the exhibition.
Earlier, Dr Gowher Rizvi, international affairs adviser to the Prime Minister, Harsh Vardhan Shringla, high commissioner of India, Wanja Campos da Nobrega, ambassador of Brazil and eminent artist Monirul Islam jointly inaugurated the exhibition on March 18.
Priti Ali was born in March 24, 1986. A young painter, Priti has come forward to show her feelings, ideas and thoughts in colours, tones and textures in this solo exposition.
She likes to express herself in abstract and formless identities in informal ways. The perception of subjectivity in terms of human consciousness and cognition has been attempted to be carried out through her creations.
Like all, Priti spends her time with love, hate, joy, melancholy, dream, sorrow, solitude and suffering. These have no visual forms, figures or shapes in particular but inherent subdued perceptions to be felt by the heart.
Priti has expressed these formless conjectures in other ways with the help of geometric patterns of dots, lines, squares, rectangles, circles, triangles, seven colors of vibgyor, tones and textures.
In this exhibition, Priti has skillfully shown the profound human subjective expressions through her brilliant artistic creations.
Priti is presently working as art teacher at Indira Gandhi Cultural Centre (IGCC), High Commission of India in Dhaka.
Previously, she was art teacher at Society for the Welfare of Intellectually Disabled (SWID), Bangladesh, School of Development Alternative – SODA (2007-2012) and ZIAS Academy (2010-2011).
She did her Master of Fine Arts in 2013 from University of Development and Alternative (UDA). She has also completed a course on History of Art and Art Appreciation at Bangladesh Art and Cultural Academy.
