About the Artist


 

                                                                                                  


Hi, I am Mahfuzur Rahman based in Dhaka, Bangladesh, and residing in Dubai, UAE.

I think of my installations as unfinished inventories of fragments: objects, drawings, paintings, photographs, and other inventions.  They are improvisational sites in which the constructed and the readymade are used to question our making of the world through language and knowledge.  My arrangements are schematic, inviting the viewer to move into a space of speculation.  I rely on our desires for beauty, poetics, and seduction.

Despite being a full-time corporate, this is the pleasure I receive from creating art that inspires me as an artist. I produce art to express an image of impressionism form but with my own artistic style. In each work of art, my intent is to depict compositions with lifelike details and qualities.

There were a lot of emotional events in my life that led me to hold onto my passion more and more every day. The clarity and the journey of a particular painting make my existence worthwhile. When I paint, I feel weaves of emotions hitting my soul constantly. Complete work of art gives me a height of pleasure because not only it is a painting but also conveys significant philosophy. The hues and textures of my palette are an integral part of my piece of art, this is where I search for deeper understanding in its purest form, a passionate effort to discover the essence of life. I have always concentrated on the subject as the focal point with a limited background.
