Peter Halley Creates Bold and Bright Geometrical Cells

As you gaze at Peter Halley's bold and bright paintings, I guarantee (unless you are some kind of art guru) that you wouldn't have guessed that they were inspired by prisons and cells. Of course, that is because they don't actually refer to the justice systems. Instead, they refer to the jails individuals construct around themselves. As Peter Halley puts it, they reflect the "increasing geometricization of social space in the world we live in."

Regardless of the statement this New York City native is trying to make, Peter Halley's work is still mind-blowing. Full of vibrant colors, textures and geometric shapes, these modern works are inspiring on their own.

Peter Halley's stunning new works will be on display at the Galerie Thomas Modern in Munich this year during the fall season. Stats for Prison-Inspired Paintings Trending: Older & Chilly
