“From one angle, Beery’s work could be read as a cynical deflation of artworld pretentions, but there’s a sense of celebration – perhaps of the fact that Beery is able to tap into a seemingly inexhaustible store of ideas – emphasized by the exclamation marks that pervade his books, which suggests that his real message may be a joyful acceptance of every aspect of art-making.  I think he may be the best language-painter around.”
