Ganesh Haloi's 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 a perspective with light and darkness in this piece.
