THE COLDEST NIGHT

THE WORK
Srijon Chowdhury’s second solo exhibition with Upfor includes thirteen new oil paintings occupying the limen between fairytale and realism, rich in references to literature, art history and the artist’s personal history. Having spent several months in 2017 creating Revelation Theater, a series of large-scale paintings about the apocalypse, the intimate-scale works in The Coldest Night are, Chowdhury says, evidence of "the residue of immersing myself in that story and now trying to get back out of it.”

Consciously situated in the anxiety of the contemporary moment, Chowdhury hopes to help us “find beauty in darkness and see the darkness that frames all beauty."
