Sculpture exhibition ‘Gentle Grass’ at AFD

Sculpture exhibition ‘Gentle Grass’ at AFD

A solo sculpture and drawing exhibition titled ‘Gentle Grass’ by Anisuzzaman Faroque begins at Alliance Francaise de Dhaka (AFD) in the capital’s Dhanmondi area today.

The inaugural ceremony of the exhibition will be held at 5:30 pm at its La Galerie. Eminent sculpture Professor Hamiduzzaman Khan, Dhaka University Fine Art Faculty’s Sculpture Department Professor Lala Rukh Selim and Jahangirnagar University Anthropology Department Professor Manosh Chowdhury will attend the event as the special guests.

S M Saha Anisuzzaman Faroque was born in Moheshkhali, Cox’s Bazar 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 which he incorporates in his creation of post-modern sculptures. He received his Bachelors degree in 2015 and his Masters degree in 2018 from Sculpture Department of Fine Art Faculty at Dhaka University.

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 a completely different atmosphere.

As Professor Lala Rukh Selim, Department of Sculpture, DU has said, “Faroque’s 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 the use of 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 August 30.
