‘Cell Grids’


Dallas Contemporary, Dallas, TX


Press release

‘CELL GRIDS’, Peter Halley’s first exhibition in Texas in more than fifteen years, presents a unique series of paintings made from 2015 to the present. ‘CELL GRIDS’ showcases a surprising vein of Halley’s work, paintings in which one element of his distinctive iconography—his intensely colored rectilinear “cells”—is isolated and arranged into syncopated grids, bringing his work into dialogue with the structural grid of classic Modernism as represented in the work of Piet Mondrian, Agnes Martin, Andy Warhol and others.
