Barry was one of the founders of conceptual art. The artist is especially interested in the space surrounding the art object rather than the object itself. He is quoted in a book by art critic Lucy Lippard entitled Six Years: The Dematerialism of the Art Object from 1966 to 1972 as saying "Nothing seems to me the most potent thing in the world."
