Peter Downsbrough’s (1940, US) body of work distinguishes itself by a rigorous, sparse if not strictly limited use of primary geometrical forms as lines, squares and grids, isolated punctuation marks (dots, open and closed brackets) and words such as adverbs (here, there), conjunctions (and) or prepositions (as, to), fragments of maps and floor plans, that all interact in various constellations and media (installations, drawings, collages, post cards, photographs, sculptures, and notably artists’ books, videos, music and sound pieces).
