Ganesh Haloi Transitive Abstraction

Ganesh Haloi, born in 1936 in Jamalpur (now in Bangladesh) moved to Calcutta after the partition. As a result, he had seen the country struggle for its freedom and its own identity. Haloi’s works are known for their composition of space, color, form, and narration.  Each has a different dialogue and tone through these factors.

They have a distinct idea of time, space and distance that is conveyed through views of the foreground, middle ground, and background in one plane. He also plays perspective with light and darkness in this piece.
