Ciaccia Levi and Foxy Production will jointly present a show of new paintings by Srijon Chowdhury. The artist’s intimate portraits, vanitas still-lifes, and dreamscapes combine a heightened realism with symbolic and emotional resonances, capturing the tension between mystery and revelation. His canvases use color, light, and patterning to hypnotic effect, frequently traversing different perspectival views in the same pictorial space. Recurring floral motifs point to a rich vein of sensuality and mysticism in Chowdhury’s work. By contrast, his human subjects are often pictured lost in contemplation, manifesting a mood of disquiet verging on existential alienation.
