The paintings of Peter Halley, an artist born in 1953, are inspired by urban spaces. His luminous canvases, which are criss-crossed by colourful conduits and pipes, brim with movement and energy. The exhibition features recent works by the artist.
“The square, signifying a cube and a cell, figures and refigures throughout Halley's oeuvre. His visual lexicon, his iconography, is economic. He has developed and repeated this lexicon, pared down to squares, rectangles, conduits, cells, prisons, windows, since the 1980s. (…) He has achieved a systematic taxonomy of image and attitude through combined references to Pop Art, Minimalism, Abstract Expressionism, and Colour Field painting. A completed catalog enriched of a DVD explaining well Peter Halley's work.
