Much of Ganesh Haloi’s work stems from the associations of his childhood. Displaced from his surroundings (he was forced to move to Calcutta after the Bengal Partition), the memories of his homeland is what he sought to capture in many of his landscapes. This gouache diptych emerges from them, rendering the verdant land flush with the bounty of the monsoon, a suggestion of fields of paddy and a bird’s-eye view of a remembered land.
