Robert Barry has been a leading proponent of conceptual art since the 1960s, often using fragments of language in order to prompt the viewer to take an active role in connecting the phrases and generating a multiplicity of meanings from them. His works on paper serve as provocative abstract compositions, and are also frequently conceived as preparatory sketches for larger murals, in which the viewer becomes surrounded by his constellations of words.
