Noted artist Maksuda Iqbal Nipa's solo painting exhibition titled “Chromatic Delusions” is now on at Bengal Art Lounge, Gulshan-1 in the capital. Pierre Mayaudon, Ambassador of the European Union to Bangladesh, and Professor Emeritus Anisuzzaman jointly inaugurated the exhibition on October 31.
Nipa, as an incessant voyager to the aesthetic lane of art, has captured the beauty of nature, portrayed the multifarious aspects of human relationships and articulated the ecstasy of eternity in her oil paintings. The colour of nature gracefully serenades the forms and motifs in her search for solitude, introspection and contemplation.
Delicate lines, impressionable brush-strokes, lurid colours are evident features of Nipa's paintings. Metaphors play in rhythm in her mind-blowing paintings where profound droplets and various strewn forms are visible. Every line, dot, sprinkle and vibrant colours on Nipa's canvas radiate various insightful moods, melodies and feelings.
The lyrical surge of sensitivity coupled with a nuance of abstractions builds up a panoramic view in her paintings where exquisite textures evoke chromatic delusions. Nipa's canvases are bountiful in abstract images. Thick and shimmering colours create volume and perspective in a poetic way.
A reflective and resourceful painter, Nipa has created an artistic hallmark of her own. The most momentous aspect in her works is colours with which she loves to experiment with. She applies colour directly, piling up thick layers on the canvas. The layers provide a distinctive touch to her work and that is why her canvas carries an individual signature. Deep layers of colours provide a unique texture to her canvas and that is why her canvas carries a singular hallmark. Over the years, Nipa has developed this technique, an expensive and time-consuming one, requiring immense effort and devotion. The artist took three years to complete the featured works displayed at the exhibition that will remain open daily from 12pm to 8pm until November 21.
