Peter Halley - 20th Century to Now London Friday, June 30, 2023 | Phillips
  • “I realised that the work up to about 1988 was about describing an inventory of objects […] I think of the new paintings as much more verbal, they are more about motion. They are about being in the space rather than looking at a picture of it. They give me the feeling of rushing around in that space, of flowing through it rather than looking at a diagram of that flow.”
    —Peter Halley
