CINCINNATI, OH.- Carl Solway Gallery is presenting a 25-year survey of the prints and editions of New York artist Peter Halley. The exhibition feature s33 editioned works, including silkscreen, letterpress, and digital prints, editioned wall installations, and low-relief sculptural editions.

The works on view provide an overview of Halley’s wide-ranging experimentation in both traditional and digital printmaking techniques since the 1980s.

Beginning with his early vacuum-formed relief “Prison,” produced in 1987, and concluding with his most recent low-relief edition, “Explosion," produced digitally with a CNC router by Carl Solway Gallery in 2013, this show presents the first retrospective of Halley’s prints and wall installations since his 1997 solo exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

Halley’s prints can be seen as a counterpoint to his paintings, which are based on a hermetic, restricted visual vocabulary. In contrast, his printmaking practice has provided him with the opportunity to incorporate elements from the outside world including imagery from cartoons and found graphics such as flow charts. As opposed to the rational, rectilinear geometry of his paintings, Halley's printmaking has long focused on the image of the explosion, beginning with 1993 silkscreen print “Exploding Cell.” Halley is also a recognized innovator in the use of digital prints to produce mural-sized works.

Peter Halley has executed permanent digitally-printed mural installations for the Biblioteca Publica Jose Hierro in Usera, Spain, in 2002, and at the Gallatin School for Individualized Study at New York University in 2008.
