Peter Halley (American, b. 1953) is best known for his large-scale installations and his smaller geometric works that explore the motif of prisons or cells through geometric figures. Inspired by Josef Albers’s “Interaction of Color” early in his career, Halley’s works often employ dynamic use of color theory in layered composition. His writings were the inspiration for the Neo-Geometric Conceptualists. The artist came to prominence in the 1980s, exhibiting at International with Monument and at the Sonnabend Gallery. His work is found in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, Tate Gallery, and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum.
