Wonderland-Fantasy
Recent Paintings of Albert Ashok


The title of the exhibition of the present series of paintings by Albert Ashok, which happens to be his 7th solo is ‘Human, Humanoid and Poetry in Wonderland’. He has some preference for the world of grotesque and fantasy, which he calls ‘Wonderland’. He titled his last exposition as ‘Chaos in Wonderland’. This wonderland is not far off from his existence, from the environment he lives in, that is from the contemporary times. But in the process of fantasizing, the known world and the present time gets transformed. Elements of past and future, elements of myth and imaginary world creep in. But the aim of the artist is to unmask the various layers of reality that darkens the present state of existence. Albert is basically a romantic rebellion. The absurdity of contemporary existence haunts him. He tries to find a way out, some times in the form of anguish, often in the form of apparent sobriety and lyrical transcendence. In this exhibition there are works of both these trends,
Fantasy is an essential mode of expression in visual arts. Literally or lexically the word means an imagined state of situation usually pleasant and often to some extent caustic or sarcastic. In Greek aesthetics the entire field of expression used to be classified in two streams: mimesis and fantasia. Mimesis reflected the natural. When the image deviated from the natural, it used to be categorized as fantasia. In Indian classical aesthetics the term ‘chamatkara’ was devised by the aesthetician Visvanatha to indicate the essence of fantasy. Abhinabagupta, another aesthetician assimilated ‘chamatkara’ with ‘rasa’ to give the term greater validity. However in Indian classicism ‘chamatkara’ was elevated to the state of the transcendental. But the situation of primitivist and modernist art is different. In both these trends fantasy is a general and very significant trend of expression that tends to enter deeper both to mystify and demystify the reality, to dissect it. Fantasy is often used as a form of rebellion, as has been done in expressionism, cubism and surrealism.
The forms of Albert Ashok are based on naturalism. He transforms the voluminous illusionist three dimensional rendering into a state of comic ridiculous situation to mimic the pseudo-valor and expanded egoistic ambition of human being, often to find a pleasant situation to indicate peace and tranquility. The way he transforms the natural is akin to the ridiculous situation of fantasy. When he tries for tranquility his expressions reflect some elements of ‘chamatkara’.
Albert Ashok is a self made man and self taught artist. From a blank situation he has struggled hard to come to his present position of an established artist. The struggle has given him an insight to look into and realize the human situation and the state of affairs through which the contemporary civilization is soaring high with a deep void within it. To him the entire situation is ridiculous, a sort of wonderland and pulsating with a possibility of annihilation. His fantasy grows out of this void.
In the present exhibition we see his large format canvases painted in acrylic showing various forms of fantasy, vibrant and tranquil. In the painting titled ‘Humanoid’ he paints a couple on horse back. Out of the dynamism he extracts a sense of void. In ‘Happy Moments’ a couple sits on a sofa, the man with a guitar in hand, the woman with a book. In some of the other works like ‘Sohag’, where a woman takes a bath in a pond, ‘The Blue Musician’ playing guitar, ‘Yellow Bird and a Cowherd’, a pleasant pastoral scene, the artist creates different faces of ‘Wonderland’. The myth is far from existing reality. ‘Wonderland’ is a tragic void.

The Terrible and the lyrical
The Paintings of Albert Ashok
Diversity of form in contemporary painting is extensive, as it contains all the legacies of the past not only of our country but also of the various trends through out the world. An artist builds up his own form through selection and synthesis of various inheritances according to his/her own motivation and world out look. Our modernity started with assimilation of western naturalism during the middle of nineteenth century. The second trend of the modernity grew out of the rebellion against such foreign invasion that prompted the artists towards the search for an indigenous identity out of a nationalist ideology delving deeper into the legacy of our classical and popular past. The forms of neo-Indian school thus generated. All the subsequent developments till modernist and Post- modern have grown out of these two basic structures.
The present duet show of Albert Ashok is based on two basic trends of the initial phase of our modernity, that is western naturalism and indigenous heritage. The trends are naturally diverse. But the variation endows the show with a different charm revealing how the contemporary life contains the stresses growing out of its complexities and at the same time sublimates the same towards an enchantment and divine beauty.

Albert Ashok is a self made man whose artistic faculty has developed out of his struggling interaction with the life. Born in Agartala of Tripura in 1961 has lost his mother at the age of one and half. The struggle started there. When he was eight or nine, he felt he had an indomitable urge for artistic creativity. But finding no way out he fled from his home at the age of seventeen in search of art. He learnt painting through strife with this life.The life was very much real to him. He might have felt that he could express this dissension through realism, and the reality could best be captured through naturalist form. After conquering a good grasp on naturalism, he deviated. Naturalism has its own limitation. But if it can be energized with subsequent trends of distortions and geometrical innovations, It can delve deeper into reality and also super-reality. At a certain stage Albert converted his realism into fantasy to reveal the deeper mystery of life, of love and sexuality. Out of this fantasy and a mystery a different kind of beauty was revealed to him. He could extract beauty out of struggle of life. He endowed his naturalism with cubist geometrical structure. The synthesis revealed the contradiction between the beauty and the horrid and also how the terrible can be resurrcted towards the pleasant. The present series of paintings shown in this exhibition is built out of this philosophy. Where pastoral cows contain the metropolitan violence and complexities, and the ‘bathing woman’ reveal within her lyrical and bucolic charm an intricate strife with this life. He has made a successful admixture of urban and rural ethos.

Chaos in Wonderland
A solo exhiobition of Paintings by Albert ashok


কিছু কথাঃ
এবারের প্রদর্শনীতে আমার নতুন গোটা ১৫ টি ছবি। প্রদর্শনীর শিরোনাম আশ্চর্য নগরীতে বিশৃঙ্খলা। এই পর্যায়ের ছবিগুলি আমার বিশেষ ভাবনার, আঙ্গিকের। এটা আমার ষষ্ঠতম একক প্রদর্শনী। আগে ইভ, বাটারফ্লাই এন্ড পাইথন’, শিরোনামে বাস্তব রীতিতে অনেক ছবি এঁকেছি। এবারের উপস্থাপনায় ছবি ও বক্তব্য কিছুটা দুঃসাহসিক।
বস্তুকে  নয়, জীবনকে কবিতা বা শিল্পের মূলাধার করা উচিত। কারণ মানুষের জীবন অনেক জটিল প্রক্রিয়ায় ঢুকে গেছে বাঁচার জন্য। এই জটিল পথে বাঁচাকে লাগব করার জন্য আজ নতুন শিল্প সাহিত্য গড়তে হবে। এই গড়া বা কাজটি সম্পাদন করতে গেলে মূল তিনটি উপাদান দিয়ে ভিত্‌ বা ফাউন্ডেশন করা প্রয়োজন। এখান থেকেই আমার ছবি ও কবিতার আঙ্গিক, দর্শনের ভাবনা।
থ্রি ডি মানে তিনমাত্রার ছবি, বা ঘনকবাদের ছবি আপনারা দেখেছেন। থ্রি ডি তে আপনি বস্তু যে অনেকটা স্থান জুড়ে অবস্থান করে সেটা দেখেছেন। যুগ যুগ ধরে শিল্প ও সাহিত্য কে মানুষের প্রয়োজনে, ব্যবহারিক অর্থে কত কাছে নেওয়া যায় তার আন্দোলন দেখেছেন। দেখেছেন ইম্প্রেশনিজম , এক্সপ্রেশনিজম, কিউবিজম, ফভিজম, ইত্যাদি ইত্যাদি থেকে ম্যাজিক রিয়ালিজম অনেক মুভমেন্ট।  কিন্তু আমার মনে হয়েছে এই সময়ের দাবী অনুযায়ী , উপরে বর্ণিত তিনটি উপাদান যে কোন শিল্প সাহিত্যকে সর্বাঙ্গীন সুন্দর করতে সাহায্য করে। এবারের ছবিতে তাই এই ভাবনার পরীক্ষা হয়েছে। এবং সবার কাছে গ্রহন যোগ্য ভাবে সুন্দর হিসাবে চিহ্নিত হয়েছে।
থ্রি ই তে আপনি জীবন জগত দেখবেন। মানে জীবনে স্পন্দন খুঁজে পাবেন। আগের শিল্পকলায় শিল্পীরা চেষ্টা করেছেন বস্তুকে ফুটিয়ে তোলার জন্য, আমি থ্রি ই তে জীবনকে ধরার চেষ্টা করছি। ছবি ও কবিতা বস্তু বা বিষয়ের মাত্রা নয়- পুরো জীবনের মাত্রাকে তুলে ধরবে, এটাই থ্রি ই। যে তিনটে উপাদানে জীবনকে ধরা যায় বা আমি ধরার চেষ্টা করেছি  তা হলোঃ
১। পটে যে বিজ্ঞান বা অংক বস্তুজগতকে মেলে ধরতে সাহায্য করে, বস্তুর আকৃতি ফুটিয়ে তোলে আমি এখানে জ্যামিতির রূপকল্প ব্যবহার করেছি।
২। রূপকল্প সৃস্টির সময় কল্পনা বা নান্দনিকতার কথা বা সুন্দর দিয়ে মুড়ে নেওয়ার ভাবনা। - আমার ছবিতে আমি দেখেছি যেটা সুন্দর নয় তা বাদ দিয়ে দিয়েছি। শক্তিশালী কল্পনার আশ্রয় নিয়েছি।
৩। আনন্দ বা কোন ভাবনার নিরিখে কোন জীবন দর্শন। মানে একটা কথা থাকবে দর্শককে বলার জন্য। জীবনে আনন্দ বা ভাবনা আসবে এমন কোন উপাদান।আমার ছবিতে তেমন কিছু খূঁজে পাবেন।
