“Were once geometry provided a sign of stability, order, and proportion, today it offers an array of shifting signifiers and images of confinement and deterrence.”

– Peter Halley

Halley’s paintings contextualised by the urban environment of his native New York: rectilinear forms are deliberately reminiscent of engineering diagrams, corporate flow charts, and the blueprints of prisons and clinics.
