"We live in a society of informational and cultural overload. The idea of a Cezanne, for example, which you can study for hours and various nuances are revealed, seems very out of touch at least with my own psychic life. I want to make something explosive and immediate. And hopefully explosive and immediate each time you go by and take a quick look at it."
Peter Halley, excerpted from Peter Halley: Maintain Speed, D.A.P./Distributed Art Publishers, Inc.

Peter Halley: The Complete 1980s PaintingsPeter Halley: The Complete 1980s Paintings

Published by JRP|Ringier.
Edited by Clément Dirié, Cara Jordan. Text by Cara Jordan, Peter Halley.

New York–based Peter Halley (born 1953) is a prominent figure in contemporary art. A protagonist of the dynamic New York art scene of the 1980s, and founder of the seminal Index magazine, he gained recognition as one of the main champions of the neo-geo movement with his geometric paintings rendered in intense fluorescent Day-Glo acrylic paint and Roll-a-Tex texture additive. Since the mid-1990s his site-specific installations and permanent public works have extended his practice to a larger scale.
A landmark publication for all those interested in contemporary painting, this catalogue raisonné of Peter Halley’s paintings from the 1980s gathers together the complete body of 186 works realized between 1980 and 1989 and fully documents them for the first time. Showing the evolution of his work, it makes clear how Halley built his own geometric and chromatic vocabulary to challenge the then prevailing ideas about the nature and history of abstract painting, and how motifs such as the cell, the prison, the conduit and the brick wall came into existence, in parallel with his own thinking—inspired in part by French Structuralist theory—about modern life (urban design, media, new mass digital technologies) and the increasing geometrization of social space.
Introduced by art historian Cara Jordan, editor of this extensive research-based publication, the book also includes an illustrated biography and an anthology of key texts written by the artist in the 1980s.

Peter Halley: Since 2000Peter Halley: Since 2000

Published by Maruani & Noirhomme Gallery.
Text by Jo Melvin.

Peter Halley (born 1953) is well known for his brightly colored, gridded, geometric abstractions which he calls "prisons" and "cells." Composed of rectangular shapes and vertical bars, Halley's works evoke a range of geometric network models, from the urban grid to high-rise apartment buildings to electromagnetic conduits. In an introduction to this publication, which reproduces works created since 2000, Jo Melvin writes: "In Peter Halley's paintings colors clash and conjoin to create a dizzying sensation. At times the optical effect created by the Day-Glo's luminosity is so jarring that the paintings almost hurt the eye. He celebrates effects such as the plethora of color in neon signs, internet surfing, and our image-saturated media world. The three-dimensional quality of Halley's work asserts the object status of the paintings in a way that photographic reproduction simply cannot represent."
