New paintings

Peter Halley returns to Barcelona with the exhibition New Paintings, to present new works on canvas. In this new series, the iconic “cells” or “prisons” connected by circuits, expand to shape the canvas. Halley thus introduces an important compositional novelty in his work – an imaginary created in the early 1980s that echoes in most of his artistic corpus.

The colour palette of this new series also manifests a signifcant change. With an abundance of fuorescent yellow, violets and, above all, pinks (clear, warm and intense), Halley’s compositions become particularly luminous. There is no lack of different layers of preparation to give consistency and depth to the pictorial surface, as well as the use of “Roll-A-Tex”, a lumpy commercial paint, very popular in the 70s and 80s for home decoration, which has accompanied the artist for decades. With this, Halley creates contrasts of textures and reliefs between the compositional elements and combines the industrial and urban register with the sensuality of a tactile experience.
