Edition - 2/9
The experience of Ajanta influenced Haloi profoundly. His work was marked by lyricism. Haloi worked in many mediums and initially painted figures in landscapes. The mood was inevitable poignant. Gradually, Haloi moved towards landscapes. A sense of nostalgia for a lost world pervaded these paintings. Event- ally, Haloi turned to abstract renderings of landscapes. Dots, dashes, lines became cryptic signs for trees, water, green fields.
