Robert Barry: How Things Have Changed…

Parra & Romero

21 Feb 201814 Apr 2018

“How things have changed… “combines several classic works -from 1969 and 1970, respectively- with recent paintings that Barry has created specifically for this occasion.

The work of Robert Barry deals with concepts as silence, emptiness, invisibility, language, thought or even electromagnetic waves. To put the accent on what has no physicality, and make it his work of art, the artist uses material elements that function as delimiters. Thus, the absence of a layer of paint is what makes visible the outline of the letters in his paintings – letters of words that are stripped of their linguistic and communicative function to become only a plastic element.
