Peter Halley -  - Exhibitions - Lopez de la Serna CAC

Previous generations of abstract painters described their rectangular coloured compositions as either representations of universal and harmonic balance - like Mondrian or Malevich; or as evocations of the Supreme, notions beyond human understanding - such as Newman or Rothko.

Halley suggests another way of interpreting geometric abstraction. For the artist, it can be re-interpreted as an analogy of the underlying structures that govern technological societies.

In his essays, the artist exposes his case like a re-contextualized abstraction that represents not an escape towards mysticism, but a social and aesthetic critic.
