Buy contemporary minimalism artworks
What is modern minimalism art? Minimalism in visual art is a very diverse trend, which has many expressions. Its main feature is the aspiration to limitation of expressive means, modesty and simplicity of artistic language. We can say that minimalism rejects everything unnecessary and reveals the essence of art.
Features and trends of minimalist art
Where can we find the origins of minimalism? Art historians trace its beginnings back to the “Black Square” by Kazimir Malevich: a basic geometrical form, two pigments, black and white, a great philosophical fullness of outward restraint. But if we turn to the East, we will see the centuries-old Japanese culture, in which minimalism is elevated not only to aesthetic, but also to a philosophical principle. The culture in which the excesses are equal to bad taste, gave to the world fine examples of minimalism in interiors, design, poetry and, of course, fine art, for example, sumi-e – easy aesthetic minimalist paintings in ink. Modern Japanese minimalism does not break with tradition, but finds a new expression. In the West the minimalist tendencies in the XX century were present in constructivism, Bauhaus art, dadaism, geometrical abstraction and other styles. Classical minimalism (minimal art or ABC art) was formed in the 1960s in the United States. It is characterised by simple geometric forms, the rejection of pompous symbolism and the use of repetition. We hope that modern minimalism art definition become clear for you.
Famous minimalism artists
Since the desire for simplicity existed in many different trends, the most famous minimalist artists include many masters, especially abstractionists. For example, the American Frank Stella, who created the ‘Black Paintings’ cycle in the 1950s, made a name for himself in the style of post-painterly abstraction. His older contemporary Ellsworth Kelly did bright, concise geometries in the ‘color field’ style. Prominent American artists Ad Reinhardt, John McCracken, Anne Truitt, Agnes Martin worked with minimalism sculpture and painting. The Frenchman Yves Klein became very famous thanks to his original blue famous minimalist art. The Spaniard Antón Lamazares became famous as a lyrical minimalist, while the Chilean artist Jose Basso is called the “perfect minimalist” for his landscapes that combine extreme conciseness with spirituality. At the end of the twentieth century neo-minimalism emerged, with names such as Catharine Burgess, Peter Halley and Peter Schuyff.
What are minimalist artworks today?
Minimalism contemporary art pieces – you could call them simplistic paintings – are often monochrome or colour-neutral, containing either simple geometry or simplified natural forms (large planes of sky, water). Minimalist painters are attentive to materials as well as to the space in which the object is placed. Ideas of minimalism are implemented not only in painting or minimalist sculpture, but also in interior design (for example, in the so popular Scandinavian style), landscape and graphic design, in the sphere of high and mass fashion. Modern minimalist photography is very interesting, for example, the work of Martin Vorel (Czech Republic). Apart from visual modern minimal art, there is minimalism music, literature, cinema and even… cooking and do not forget about minimalist sculptors.
