Solo painting show of Abdul Guffar to begin Feb 8

The third solo painting exhibition of artist Md Abdul Guffar Babu titled ‘Pixel of Emotion’ will begin on February 8 at the La Galerie of Alliance Française de Dhaka (AFD) in Dhanmondi of the capital.

The inaugural ceremony of the two-week exhibition will be held on Friday at 5:30pm on the gallery premises, where the chairman of Gallery Cosmos and Cosmos- Atelier 71 Enayetullah Khan will be present as chief guest.

Professor Abul Barq Alvi, Faculty of Fine Art, University of Dhaka will also be present as the guest of honour during the opening ceremony.

Emotion can be defined as an intellectual activity of the human psychology or a particular degree of expression reflecting pleasure or dissatisfaction. Emotion is complex. It changes due to the physical and mental states of every human being. Some theories posit emotion as a syndrome of elements that includes motivation, feeling, behaviour, and physiological changes — but the emotion’s definition remains so vast as to be almost intangible.

Interestingly, art is a medium to express emotion in the form of pictorial depictions that are widely used and accepted. The artist tries to reflect in his canvas the emotional changes people go through in their daily lives due to socioeconomic and political conditions and hardships. He also tries to enframe those different phases of emotional states amalgamating with a conceptualized setting. Md Abdul Guffar Babu believes these ‘frames’ may somewhat express emotion in the breadth of its definition.

Artist Abdul Guffar Babu obtained his MFA from the Department of Print Making, Faculty of Fine Art, University of Dhaka in the year 2008. In between 2000-2019 he has participated in many group art exhibitions, residency programs and art workshops at home and abroad. He has been working in many different media like watercolour, oil colour, pencil, acrylic, charcoal, etching aquatint, dry point, woodcut, lithography, installation, public art, video art, sound art, book illustrations, book cover design and mixed media since 2000. The subjects of his painting are often abstract and semi realistic.

The exhibition will remain open to all until February 22 and can be visited according to the following schedule: Monday to Thursday from 3pm to 9pm, Friday and Saturday (9am to 12 noon and 5pm to 8pm); closed on Sunday.

Where: AFD, 26 Mirpur Road, Dhanmondi
