Transcendence through Image: An Art Exhibition by M R Hasan

The glamorous exhibition was an exposé of some of the most thoughtful digital art representation of Mohammad Rakibul Hasan in front of our eyes. 'Transcendence through Image: An Art Exhibition' was hosted on February 24-26, 2018 at Le Meridian Dhaka. French ambassador to Bangladesh, Marie-Annick Bourdin, inaugurated the exhibition as chief guest.

Voyaging through the postmodern era has broadened our perspectives and allowed us to take a more critical step towards realism, meta realism, hyper realism and the magnificent images created by MR Hasan, a renowned visual artist and documentary photographer, has crafted a passageway to explore that. “In reality, all our senses are only limited to certain boundaries, but my photographs are intended to transfer us beyond these boundaries to an alternate dimension or void. Here, I have used digital art, colour filters and many mixed mediums to create a sense of spirituality. I have experimented with spiritual concepts and ideas to explore a deeper level of my artistic aptitude. I have tried to depict my spiritual journey through these photographs,” said Hasan.

Barack Obama visited Germany in 2008, where two hundred thousand people gathered to see him and listen to his speech. He was not only the President of United States of America, rather in that moment he became a global leader. The picture depicts his importable journey that leaded him to a significant persona who could create this world into a better place to live. The existence of the God might be a controversial matter but when a human governs other humans at a large scale—that distinguishable position is what Obama holds.

The photograph evokes thousands of people gathered in a crowd similar to bees surrounding a honeycomb. If we think or see humans or other species from an elevated point of view, or from a God's perspective with an authoritative view, we can distinguish these humans merely as a species where there is no individual identity as a stand-alone. We are nothing but creatures of nature and nature follows randomness on birth selection, and many other activities of ours are dependable on randomness or just on our fortune.

“Transcendence though the Image:  An Art Exhibition” is the first of the Le Meridian Brand flagship event series known as 'New Perspective'. At 'New Perspective' events, the hotel intends to invite creative minds to gather new insight and stimulus through interactive experiences such as exploring an artist's talent. This is the first signature event of 2018 where the brand took the initiative to bring Hasan and his soulfully blissful photographs for an exhibition.

The General Manager of Le Meridian Dhaka Constantinos S. Gavriel, was also present. Hasan is a brilliant artist who studied history of art at University of Oxford and is currently enrolled for an MA in Photography at Falmouth University UK. Throughout his lifetime, he has won an endless series of accolades and awards internationally and feels grateful to learn that this event will inspire artists and create opportunity for many others to explore such different mediums of art and photography.
