The term minimal art was coined in the 1960s by an American art critic, Donald Judd. It is a type of abstract art that is characterized by the absence of decoration in the work and its content.
Minimalism in painting is the use of a limited number of elements to create a composition.
Minimalism is often characterized as a reductive form of Modern art, and it has been used in various artistic media such as painting and sculpture.
Minimalist artists are interested in exploring what can be expressed through simple shapes, forms, or colors. Donald Judd wrote in 1965 that the “minimalist approach is not simply retrograde; it is radical in hypothesis, and therefore the most progressive.
“The meaning of “abstract art” or “abstract expressionism” has changed over time. What was originally intended as an advancement of impressionism, as theorized by Clement Greenberg, eventually became a term used to describe any post-cubist art which was not figurative. In this sense abstract art does not connote a style or movement and is instead a term for any art in which the subject matter is not depicted.
One of the key principles of minimalism is the use of flat, geometric shapes. These shapes can be used to create a unified composition and a sense of space.
It is often associated with the Abstract Expressionist movement, but can also be found in other art forms.
