Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

Firoz Mahmud’s mixed media on paperworks, wood carvings and oil layapa Stencil paintings of the ‘Legacies Project’ narrate about the history and legacy of South Asia. He also transforms the painterly and linear based paperwork into wood which is carved manually depicting aspects of cultural heritage that may have gotten devalued or undermined through the mechanisms of colonialism that affected many nations till the 20th century.

In the series submitted, `Drawing Reverberation`[Aupniveshik/Porouponibeshik], he uses idioms such as old palaces, forts, spice trees or herbaceous plants, wild animals and colonial traders in these drawings and carvings, addressing the riches of his native land. Mahmud juxtaposes themes of socio-political culture, tradition, history, and myths that beg the question of how they exist today, and what forces have created new visual territories, impacting how these can be remembered as cultural histories and those of neighbors.
