Born in 1953 in New York City, Peter Halley is one of the most remarkable American conceptualist painters of his generation. For many years, his paintings have been engaging in a play of relationships between what Halley calls "prisons" and "cells" – icons that reflect the increasing “geometricization of social space in the world in which we live”.
