Full Description

Ganesh Haloi, one of the best-known abstract Indian artists of his generation, was born in Jamalpur, in present-day Bangladesh, in 1936, and moved to Kolkata in 1950. This book accompanies an exhibition of lyrical works which meditate on the fluid world of nature and water, creating an elegy to living and lost aquatic landscapes in translucent color, shapes, and lines. He expresses a visible joy in composition, and a deep sense of pathos. Ganesh Haloi represented India at the Berlin Biennale in 2014, and exhibited at Documenta 14 in Athens and Kassel in 2017.  Published in association with Akar Prakar Gallery, Kolkata.
