Ethereal Assemblage
Paintings by Rakeeb Hassan

Dates: November 10-22, 2015
Venue: Alliance Française

Bangladeshi artist Rakeeb Hassan’s first ever one-man show took place in Kenya in 1994. His upbringing in Bengali language, literature and art, his formative training in fine arts in Kenya, his immigrant experiences in the UK and Canada, continue to influence Rakeeb’s art. His brush is constantly balanced in space, abstractly capturing fleeting glimpses of images which come in ethereal forms. His paintings are the colour of everything – what we think or what we can’t think, what we see or what we can’t see, assembling it all to portray a universe of freedom, free thought and tolerance.

This exhibition is homage to the slain bloggers of Bangladesh and to the lost lives in Kenya’s terror attacks.
