PETER HALLEY (1953, New York, USA)

Peter Halley is an abstract artist and first came to prominence as a result of the geometric paintings in intense colors that he produced in the early 1980's. His geometrical abstractions interpret the structures of computer chips and prison cells -- structures that, for him, function as a kind of blueprint for society. He has combined his paintings with silkscreen prints, wall diagrams, and fiberglass reliefs as full-scale installations. Halley is also known as a writer and publisher. Peter Halley has also taught at Columbia University and UCLA. His practice as an artist is usually associated with minimalism and neo-conceptualism.
