A key figure of Indian modernism, Ganesh Haloi presents in this exhibition different series of gouache and watercolour on paper. Haloi's abstract compositions evoke the nature of his native Bengali land, and the apparent simplicity of these sheet-sized works only strengthen their evocative power. The artist's cunning ability at reading geometrical forms in the organic world is on full display in these recent works. "Rythm of Reality" is the latest example of Haloi's quest for a simple abstract language that could re-enact the intimate, almost mystical relationship between man and nature so specific to his native land. His language will invariably touch the viewers in this part of Bengal.
