Minimalism Isn’t About Having Less: It’s Keeping What Matters To You

by Designhill Tweet - in Printshop Basics - [wtr-time]


Last updated on December 29th, 2021

Less is MORE. Sounds cliché, right? But that’s the essence of minimalist art that works on the principle of ‘focus on essentials, eliminate the clutter.’

Minimalism is focused on basic elements, sleek and simple lines, repeated geometric shapes and forms, and using blocks of color and plenty of white space. Unlike action paintings, this form of art lacks drama, emotion and isn’t expressive. It’s unpretentious. Only the materials and medium of the artwork are the reality of minimalism.

From More to Less, How Did the Minimalist Art Movement Start?

It was during the late 1950s and early 60s, when the art world experienced a major transformation with the emergence of the Minimalism Art Movement as an opposition to action paintings.

Several young artists challenged the pre-existing structures for making art and rejected the idea of abstract expressionism that reflected the creator’s personal expression. Instead, these artists or minimalists stripped away the emotions, social agendas, and complex subjects to create art just for the art’s sake.

Famous minimalists like Frank Stella, Robert Morris, Donald Judd, Dan Flavin, and many others paved the way for newer concepts like capsule wardrobes, decluttering trends, etc. and gave the artists of today a new way of redefining art.
