Peter Halley, Blue Cell with Triple Conduit, 1986

Halley was attracted to static images; although the work above is flat, the black lines suggest movement. Halley inserts a reference to electrical circuits through the title, creating a combination of pre-existing signs but recasting them to create different meanings. In addition to the aesthetics of the piece, the interaction of color in this and other works that Halley created was inspired by Ad Reinhardt.
