Peter Halley: Paintings of the 1980s

The Catalogue Raisonné

Edited by Clément Dirié, Cara Jordan. Text by Cara Jordan, Peter Halley.

"Day-Glo Prison" (1982) is reproduced from 'Peter Halley: Paintings of the 1980s.'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.

"Day-Glo Prison" (1982) is reproduced from 'Peter Halley: Paintings of the 1980s.'

Landmark 'Peter Halley: Paintings of the 1980s' catalogue raisonné is new from JRP|Ringier

“Blue Cell with Triple Conduit” (1986) is reproduced from Peter Halley: Paintings of the 1980s, the new catalogue raisonné from JRP|Ringier, launching tonight at Mast Books. In his essay, “Facts Are Useless in Emergencies” (a phrase borrowed from the Talking Heads’ song “Crosseyed and Painless,” quoted in a 1981 Halley essay), Paul Pieroni comments on Halley’s pointed use of industrio-suburban materials like Day-Glo paint and Roll-a-Tex® additive as representing his “disillusionment with the idea of art as a privileged object somehow separate from the world of neon-pink detergent packaging or stucco domestic interiors. Against notions inherited from previous generations—principally that an original, autonomous, self-referential art could have a transformative effect on society, or resist its worst effects—Halley’s painting relinquishes itself to stylistic repetition, brazen semio-clash and exaggerated formal hyper-realization. For Halley all that remains are models which, in line with Baudrillard’s theory of the simulacra, endlessly orbit in contemporary culture.” continue to blog
