Suraya Khatun- ‘I am a British Bangladeshi artist, born in 1998. I am predominantly self-taught but also a former student of artist Stuart Reid. I am currently working in education and expressing my love and passion for art in my free time. My artwork is focused on the dislocation of being a second generation immigrant living in western society with the nostalgia of the South East Asia. My work uses oil paint on an acrylic base with bold paint strokes that are often horizontal but also curved to symbolise the way in which we remember time both being linear and unclear, curved and broken in our minds. The rapid and broken brushstrokes shows the fleeting nature of memories and is a physical attempt of trying to hold on to the past to reassert a notion go self-image and self-identity.’
