excerpt from oxford dictionary 1971
'beat_LESS' is part 6 of sean kerr's new minimalist series, 'dot' especially created for the web. It is work that critiques art making and art politics. It is also, an investigation into; traditional methods of minimalist abstraction (painting), contemporary technologies, popular culture and humour.
Kerr's work demonstrates the journey of crossing, and desire to cross boundaries - boundaries of media, location, history and the body. In essence, Kerr continually strives to uncover the corpus delicti of any subject or matter he may chose to tackle. One might say, each work becomes an act of subversion.
