Kazi Ghiyasuddin has been committed to abstraction throughout the last five decades, and his favoured media are water colour and oil paint. He describes himself as a sensitive, fastidious and introspective painter who believes that “the work of an artist is a crystallised experience, deep inside him or herself”.
The gentle immediacy of expression possible though watercolour on paper and the considered deliberations expressed with each layer of oil-heavy pigment are of equal necessity to his practice. The opposing characters of oil and water provided Ghiyasuddin the means to explore the connected dualities hidden within life, nature and the universe.
