Minimalist Art - George Westren's Dreams

Minimalist art, also known as Minimalism, is an art movement that emerged in the 1960s as a reaction against the complexity and emotional expression of Abstract Expressionism. It is characterized by a focus on simplicity, clarity, and a reduction of form to its essential elements. Minimalist artists sought to create works that were stripped down to their fundamental components, often using geometric shapes, basic colors, and simple materials.

Common characteristics of minimalist art include simplicity, minimal colour palette, seriality or repetition, focus on space and environment, and often the use of industrial materials.  Prominent minimalist artists include Donald Judd, Dan Flavin, Agnes Martin, Sol LeWitt, and Frank Stella, among others. Minimalism has influenced various fields beyond visual art, including design, architecture, and even music.

Minimalism challenged conventional notions of art by questioning the need for elaborate narratives, emotional expression, and decorative elements. It sought to establish a new kind of aesthetic experience that relied on the inherent qualities of form, space, and material.  Review all the exciting minimalist artworks available for sale in Art Hawk's auctions below.
