In an interview where he talks about his paintings done in the Nineties, Ganesh Haloi recalled visiting several places of historical importance which may have gone unnoticed by people. These travels, along with other experiences, led Haloi to understand architecture in abstraction. ‘Memory has always proven crucial to me and enables me to function during periods of anxiety…’ he said. This Untitled gouache, then, reflects the artist’s stance of creating work that is rigorous, intuitive, and re-establishes a lost contact with the unconscious and the primordial past.
