Published for the exhibition at Mary Boone Gallery in 2013 where Halley's paintings were hung against Italian architect Mendini's wallpaper. The exhibition featured nine new Halley paintings installed on digitally-printed wallpaper designed by Mendini in his atelier in Milan, Italy.

Halley, who has long been interested in the interaction between his paintings and architecture, invited Mendini to design this wall mural to create an intense interaction between his painting and the architectural setting created by Mendini’s intervention.

Halley’s paintings used his iconic cell and prison imagery, however, now with a satirical, playful tone. Compact in size (no dimension is greater than five feet), his once-grounded structures are here seemingly suspended from their conduits or hover freely above their solid backgrounds. Mendini’s brightly coloured wallpaper is printed in three different meter-wide modules, which are repeated in varying sequences around the Gallery.
