“I make paintings and installations that present ideology, history, and mythology as feelings, as a means of acknowledging the subjectivity and changeability of history.” – Srijon Chowdhury
Srijon Chowdhury received his MFA from Otis College of Art and Design in 2013. His dream-like oil paintings are intended to act in the space between knowledge and emotion. They consider the present moment as part of a larger, intuited history. He has exhibited in Los Angeles at Klowden Mann, The Torrance Art Museum, Jaus, Launch Gallery, and Helen Bolsky Gallery; at Vox Populi in Philadelphia; in Chicago at Sector 2337; in Miami at Fredric Snitzer Gallery, and at The Gallery in Dhaka, Bangladesh. He runs an alternative exhibition space in Portland called Chicken Coop Contemporary. Chowdhury is part of Endings, a two-artist exhibition at The Art Gym at Marylhurst University, through March 4, 2018. He is represented by Upfor, Portland.
