Peter Halley is a contemporary American artist best known for his neon-colored geometric paintings. Since the early 1980s, Halley has honed in on motifs related to barred windows, prison cells, and the conduits and grids composing cities. “Space became geometrically differentiated and partitioned. Circulatory pathways, the omnipresent straight lines of the industrial landscape, were established to facilitate orderly movement,” he wrote.
