Nirmalendu Goon turns painter

As an amateur painter, colours are the most dominant aspect of Goon’s works.

Poet Nirmalendu Goon's solo painting exhibition opened on July 25 at the Seminar Hall, Central Public Library, Shahbagh in the city. The exhibition was inaugurated by National Professor Kabir Chowdhury. Seasoned painter Monirul Islam was special guest. Noted art critic Moinuddin Khaled was present as a discussant. Renowned photographer Nasir Ali Mamun was the MC.
Nirmalendu Goon is considered one of the most eminent contemporary Bangladeshi poets. The exhibition presents him in a new light -- a new horizon where colours, canvas and brush come together to create expressions. Goon began painting recently and wants to be a true artist. As an amateur painter, colours are the most dominant aspect of his works. His colours are expressive and his images bear a contemplative and poetic mood.
Goon has worked on a range of themes -- some are contemporary, some induce nostalgia, while some are close to his heart. Sidr and the Pilkhana Tragedy also feature in his works symbolically. His works are closely linked to his inner views, personal agony, experiences, admiration, notions and beliefs. Goon's paintings are mainly figurative and objective. However, objects and lines at times seem indistinct. Like any budding artist, he should acquaint himself more with lines, forms, textures and compositions.
Goon's expressions are not quite clear and he has a tentative approach to art. Moreover, without captions, it is tough to identify the themes. He has tried to express himself through stiff compositions and vivid colours. His works on canvas disclose the celebration of triumph, enjoyment and experiences.
The exhibition continues till July 30.
