Sunil Howlader’s Light Filled Color Palate is Expressed in The Color of Transformation

Chelsea’s Agora Gallery will feature Bangladesh artist, Sunil Howlader, in The Color of Transformation. The exhibition is scheduled to run from November 20, 2009 through December 11, 2009 (opening reception: Thursday, December 3, 2009).
Nov. 30, 2009 - PRLog -- Melding the beauty of naturalistic representation with the expressive elements of abstraction, Sunil Howlader creates his own unique style rich with spiritual undercurrents and cultural influences. Employing a diverse assortment of media, from oil and acrylic paints to pastels on paper, Sunil Howlader’s light-filled color palette is characterized by sophisticated washes of translucent hues. Negating the presence of brushstrokes with these expanses of blended colors, Howlader deftly transitions between the realms of representation and abstraction within a single piece. Howlader’s color choices carry weighty significance, with many hues holding symbolic meaning. Following the gradation of color across the surface, the eye moves from bright white, signifying the future, to dark cool tones, representing the past.
Widely exhibited throughout Asia, Europe, North America, and Australia, Sunil Howlader’s award winning artistry is unmatched in his native Bangladesh. He holds a Master of Fine Arts from the University of Dhaka and was an International Artist-in-Residence at the Griffis Art Center, New London, CT. His paintings are included in the collections of UNICEF and the National Academy of Fine and Performing Arts of Bangladesh.  
Pulsing with a vibrant energy, Agora Gallery’s The Rhythm of Color displays the expressive central role that an artist’s palette plays in the creation of a painting. Crafting their personal inspirations in a variety of styles, this exhibition features a collection of painters that are united in their understanding of the intimate relationship between color and emotion. Persistence of Form daringly explores the experience of our modern world through the eyes of the artist. Beautifully crafted imagery abounds in this choice selection of paintings as the artists inject wit, fantasy, and sensitivity into their vision of humanity. The works are raw and physical, daring to examine inwardly while holding an unadulterated mirror to the world to expose both the ills and the joys to be found. Color of Transformation is a wonderfully diverse grouping of contemporary painters working at the forefront of their medium. With an adept eye for form, the featured artists swathe their imagery in wonderfully rich colors to maximize both visual and emotional reactions. With influences ranging from music to the natural world, visitors will enjoy exploring and interpreting the messages so brilliantly expressed through the power of color. Exhibiting a wide range of contemporary art, Metamorphosis dives into a vast cauldron of fiery inspiration. We see the humanness behind the form, we find joys, fears, intrigue, and power. There is an expanse of inventive styles, as elemental forms and dynamic figures transform the desire for understanding into action, in the same manner of the early explorers. To make the unknown, known: to see what lies over that horizon.
