Australia based Bangladeshi visual artist Tasmina Khan’s solo exhibition, titled “Remnants of the Past” is being held at the Box Hill Community Art Centre in Melbourne, organized by the Whitehorse City Council.

The artist, very much influenced by the beauty of old Dhaka during the Mughal Empire, quests for the artistic beauty of that period of time through her work of art.

Tasmina told the Dhaka Tribune’s Showtime: “The reason of my exhibition ‘Remnants of the Past’ is to raise a global awareness on the restoration and its importance beyond borders.”

“Every artwork I have created is a piece of history and I am trying to document them in the form of an art. To research and to document the architectures, I have physically visited the sites and I intend work more in future to cover the uncelebrated heritage sites in Bangladesh,” she added.

Tasmina used acrylic on canvas as her medium for the displayed pieces of art at the exhibition.

One of the pieces showcased, titled “Untold grandeur, amidst ruins” depicts a closer look at a designed door from the Mughal era. The artwork invites the visitors to the unknown mysterious world of our glorious past.

Another displayed work portrays the beautiful corridor of a palace. Balance of light and shadows along with elegant usage of colour contrast in this piece, makes it a visual delight for art lovers.

“Eulogy on illustrious façade,” articulates the fading past, and its ruins.

This is a collaborative project with the talented US based photographer, Usayed K Mahmood.

Aspirant artist Tasmina attained a Bachelors in Arts (Graphic Design) from Curtin University in Australia. She works as freelance digital/creative consultant.

Versatile artist also own an online based baking store and writes a blog.

The exhibition which was opened for viewing on February 5 was officially inaugurated on February 10 and will continue till Sunday February 17.
