Peter Halley•Patterns and Figures, Gouaches 1977/78
In 1977 and 1978 Peter Halley stayed in New Orleans and created a substantial group of gouaches, a selection of which is now on view at Galerie Thomas Modern. In these early works, which are shown in Europe for the first time, Halley renders geometric forms and abstract signs in bold, strong colours, which reveal his interest in non-European cultures and their symbols. The exhibition shows 24 works on loan from the artist’s collection and for sale.
