Peter Halley (born in NYC in 1958)

Peter Halley's artistic research moves in the field of geometric abstraction. In his paintings square and rectangular shapes, defined by the artist as 'cells' or 'prisons', relate to each other through square section ducts, representing the always more present geometrization of the social space of the contemporary electronic technological world and inviting us to reflect on the effects of psychological pressure produced on human life. The fluorescent colors are reminiscent of the paints of the Day-Glo that refer to the light waves of the contemporary technological society.
