Peter Halley: Paintings from the 1980s

Exhibition, Modern Art, London, UK.


From January 27, 2017 until March 18, 2017
The exhibition comprises a selection of paintings that surveys an important period of Peter Halley ’s work, dating from 1982-1987.
The works in this exhibition show the development during this decade of relationships between flat and textured geometric elements that the artist refers to as ‘cells’, ‘prisons’ and ‘conduits’. For Halley, these elements comprise a formal vocabulary that reflects the increasingly geometric divisions of social spaces of the world in which we live.
