Sugata Ray on Ganesh Haloi's Gouaches

Lunchtime Talk

Sugata Ray is assistant professor of South Asian art and architecture. His research focuses on the intersections between early modern and colonial artistic practices and transterritorial ecologies, climate histories, and the natural environment in South Asia. These interests inflect Ray’s exploration of the work of twentieth-century Indian artist Haloi, whose abstractions resonate with intimations of landscapes and historic artistic sites, including the Buddhist murals of Ajanta.
