The artist Frank Stella has said that Peter's use of paint allowed color to leap into the room and confront the viewer. As a Museum known for its American Impressionist collection, we are thrilled to feature Halley's large (some 8 x 10 feet) paintings created with industrial paints of boldly artificial DayGlo, metallic, and pearlescent colors.



Drawing on paintings from major public and private collections, Peter Halley: Big Paintings is a focused look at some of the artist’s most monumental paintings spanning his career from the 1980s to the present day. Since developing his iconic style in the early 1980s, Halley has worked at the forefront of a group of artists reinvigorating American abstraction with a critical lens focused on contemporary culture. Organized by the Museum’s assistant curator Benjamin Colman, this exhibition of nine monumental paintings highlights the evolution of Halley’s bold style and the sophistication of his ideas.
