SERIES FEATURE: PETER HALLEY, 29TH AUG 2014 – 3RD OCT 2014
“If you looked closely, the artwork isn’t as simple as it seems. You would soon find that what you first saw could most possibly have a meaning other than what was previously perceived. It’s strange yet in the funny, innocent way.”
Art Plural Gallery welcomes October with its newest solo exhibition by world renowned American Artist, Peter Halley.
Beginning this Friday, 29th August 2014 till 3rd October 2014, the exhibition will feature a wide variety of colorful abstract paintings that have graced several notable museums and galleries across the globe with their presence. Such include, the Guggenheim (New York), the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia (Madrid) and the Stedelijk Museum (Amsterdam).
With works and creations spanning over 15 years, the artist plays with the purposeful vibrancy of fluorescent palettes and marries them to systematic geometrical shapes; a peculiar cross between flamboyance and order.
What’s interesting is that the eccentric nature of these innocent art pieces do not stop at being peculiar coloured pastel oddities. Perhaps after you were done smiling off the child-like resonance of the work, the eye might have gradually noticed the mismatched layers of coarse and smooth textures interlacing over the canvas, which further accentuates the mystery behind these works.
Now, don’t just take it from me – why not see for yourself the eccentric notions and strokes of Peter Halley, awaiting all at the Art Plural Gallery.
