Jahangir Hossain

Jahangir Hossain’s interests lie in the relationships we have with one another and the environment in which we live. Through his art he aims to stimulate refl ection on the human condition and the way in which we respond to the world around us. The pervasive infl uence of technology continues to divert attention away from personal relationships, conducted face to face in real time. This is a troubling concern for Hossain, who believes strong romantic and familial connections are central to achieving happiness. His work explores this theme using the mother and child motif, as well as couples in loving embrace. The intermingling of forms, whereby one fi gure almost dissolves into the fl esh of the other, expresses how dependent we are on one another for love, nourishment and comfort. This message is powerfully reinforced through his solo fi gures, which tend to emit an air of despondent melancholy. As Hossain’s primary aim is to translate emotion, the fi gures are stylistic rather than realistic. Remaining featureless allows them to transcend individual differences and communicate a universal story: we need love in order to survive. Another important thread of Hossain’s work concentrates on the relationship between man and nature. He believes that it is vital for this relationship to be harmonious and balanced if it is to improve our sense of happiness and wellbeing. He is particularly inspired by nature’s ability to act as a positive, grounding force and this is visually expressed in the form of abstract fi gures carefuly interwoven into the fabric of the landscapes that surround them. The pieces resonate, both in form and ideal, with the work of Henry Moore; whose monumental female fi gures were designed to refl ect the landscape while also becoming part of it. Hossain essentially seeks to question where the true path to happiness lies. He encourages us to celebrate values which are of global as well as individual benefi t, with the importance of love and the need to respect ourselves, each other and the environment providing the thematic undercurrents of his latest series of work.
