A nine-day solo exhibition, featuring artworks by seasoned ceramic artist Akhtarun Nahar Ivy, is going on at Nalini Kanta Bhattashali Gallery of Bangladesh National Museum.
The exhibition, jointly organised by Gallery Cosmos and Bangladesh National Museum, displays a total of 136 artworks by Akhtarun Nahar Ivy.
In the exhibition, the artist has displayed three types of ceramic-based artworks like ceramic paintings and potteries, terracotta compositions and mosaic paintings.
Ivy creates diverse ceramic art using bright colours, sketches and curves. The displayed artworks show realistic figures, designs, diagrams and abstract forms.
The displayed artworks portray different themes like life and struggles of the ordinary people, motherhood, nature and more.
The artist has glorified motherhood time and again in her artworks. The displayed terracotta artwork titled ‘Madonna and Child’ shows a child embracing his mother from behind with great joy.
Lives of the ordinary people have also been captured in the displayed terracotta artworks by Ivy. One of her works titled ‘Fishermen’ shows a group of men carrying fish in buckets.
A number of clay and ceramic potteries including urns, bowls, vases with intricate designs and bright colours are also being displayed at the event.
One of the mosaic works on display at the show is titled ‘Reflection’. The work shows a woman sitting in front of a mirror, while another displayed mosaic work at the show titled ‘Couple’ depicts a man and a woman.
