Anisul Haque: The sense of humanity, 2018-2021
For me, creating art is something meaningful; that has a strong message and an impact on society. Ceramics is the best way to express my thoughts, relax my mind, and show the truth from my own perspective.
I believe that no other material has such a natural relationship with humans as clay. I combine my ceramic works with sacks which allows me to have a different texture on what I do in my work. The distressed cloth texture is expressed by exploring the emotional factor of our world today — racism, third-world country oppression, and feminism, among other topics. The purpose of our creation is to serve humanity and I believe that artists can awake us against injustice. It doesn’t matter what religion we believe in or what country we are from – we have only one identity. We are human beings. I am curious about humans and fascinated by the infinite possibilities of conflict and diversity within humanity. My work is about the unfortunate aspects of humanity. My sculptures are like a versatile mirror where the viewer can perceive the voices of contemporary problems.
