Working in oil on canvas and linen, Srijon Chowdhury explores memory and the transmission of history through his saturated, immersive paintings. He sums up his approach in a single sentence: “These paintings present, as a feeling, an idea of a version of a history.” His works range from small to large scale and have featured various motifs: blurred, minimalistic landscapes; patterned fields of seemingly countless flowers; isolated bouquets; and images of a classically carved, fragmented male torso. He often paints variations on a single theme, repeating and altering the imagery, creating a visual analogy for the inevitable evolution of historical narratives as they are told and retold across generations. Chowdhury’s feather-edged forms seem to bleed into each other, evoking a sense of distance and places and times buried deep within one’s memory.
