This limited edition lithograph "Pardes, 5761" by Peter Halley was created as part of a special graphics program exclusively for the Jewish Museum. The edition of 72 is hand signed and numbered by the artist.
Abstract artist Peter Halley seeks to create works that have an immediate and explosive visual impact through hard-edged form and color. Day-Glo and acrylic paints and areas of stucco texture are used to create subtle, brilliant effects. The rectilinear compositions recall Newman, Mondrian and Albers. Halley's work has a figurative basis. The elements of his geometric paintings are rectangular cell units, linked by linear conduits, which represent the individual organisms and networks of contemporary urban existence.
Born in New York in 1953, Halley studied at Yale University, where he received his B.A. (1975), and at the University of New Orleans, where he received his M.F.A. (1978). He returned to New York to live in 1980 and had his first solo exhibition at the International with Monument gallery in 1985. Since then, he has exhibited widely in solo and group exhibitions, including the: Museum Haus Esters in Germany, Musee d'Art Contemporain de Bordeaux, Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Kitakyushu Municipal Museum of Art in Japan.
