Minimalism

I have titled this series ‘Minimalism’ simply because it was the work of the minimalist artists that triggered the initial thinking behind the selection.

Minimalism was a term that came into use in 1960’s New York.  It was applied initially to sculptures in which a simple, unadorned unit became an essential, and often repeated, feature of the artwork  Frequently individual components were made from prefabricated materials (as in Carl Andre’s Equivalent VIII, formed from an arrangement of firebricks  — a work that caused a great deal of controversy when it w  as first exhibited at the Tate Gallery in 1976).

Minimalists rejected the use of conventional aesthetic appeal or attempts to communicate with the ‘inner self’.  They preferred austere, ‘bare bones’ pieces.  Even so, their use of colour often reflects  a link with the works of Abstract Expressionists such as Barnett Newman.

The images in this series attempt to express some of these basic ideas and conventions in two dimensional form.

The falling out

The figures have been reduced to minimalist proportions but the silhouette of the figure on the extreme left suggests there has probably been some altercation!  The contrasting moods are interesting.
