Love Story on display at AFD

Update : 22 Nov 2014, 08:24 PM

“Love Story” by Alamin Hasan is on exhibit at the Alliance Française de Dhaka.

With 13 paintings on display, the exhibition will continue until December 4.

Alamin’s paintings are like windows to someone’s life. Spectator can gaze through the vibrant primary colours with expressionistic strokes,  constantly confusing symbols. They might represent the core concept of love, that can be interpreted in manifold ways. A simple but old story.

The exhibition narrates the story of two wild human beings falling in love inside a certain social frame. They take the common ride yet feel special about. The ride is short. In a blink of an eye, they discover themselves alone again.

The strokes showcase uncountable opportunities that life offers us with compared to the things left to do. There are deep, long attachments, but what Alamin expresses is the thrill. No matter how you face it, when you face it, slow or fast, as old or as young, it always feels marvellous, says the artist.

The changes it leaves and the inspirations it grows, always drive you towards becoming a better human being.

Prof Syed Abul Barq Alvi of Faculty of Fine Arts under Dhaka University and Prof Lala Rukh Selim, chairman of Department of Sculpture, Dhaka University graced the inauguration ceremony held on Friday.
