But, taking a step back: the notions of beginnings and endings are quite subjective and context dependent in themselves. British artist Perry Roberts describes himself as “an artist who stops where painters are usually expected to begin, leaving us with surfaces for reflection.” Many of his paintings are deliberately "non finito", a Renaissance term in which works are left unfinished. He is inspired by modernists such as Ad Reinhardt and Donald Judd, but at the same time, he breaks with the strict rules of the minimalists. Roberts is also concerned with the ways in which people interact with art in public. In May 2021, for example, he will provide a weekly online masterclass for Antwerp Art on art in the public space, alongside curator Sam Watson. In it, he discusses, among other things, the ways in which "a new generation of artists have rejected the monumental scale and mass appeal of conventional public sculpture, instead favouring unconventional forms that disrupt, rather than embellish a particular location." This neon work, that seems to go against the grain in a deliberately manner, fits well with that in my opinion.
