Art Inspiration - Minimalism

Monday, 9 June 2014

Hey

I'm officially on study break as of now which means spending much of my time at home trying to force myself to study :/ But it also means I kind of have more time for blogging which I will probably more likely do when procrastinating from studying...
 
This post is a another little inspiration post thing mixed in with Art History.  Minimalism is a modern art movement I learnt about last semester and is one of the few aspects of modern art I liked and wasn't disturbed by.
 
Dan Flavin, "Pink out of a corner - to Jasper Johns 1963"
 
Kosuth, "A Four Color Sentence"
 
Carl Andre, "Lever" 1966
 
Richard Serra "Te Tuhirangi Contour"
 
These are just a few examples, I love how simple they are and how they interact with the environment around them especially with the last image in which the sculpture changes as you move around it.  I particularly like the works that incorporate light and colour, it always fascinates me how something so simple can be really stunning.
 
Hope you all enjoyed this post :D
            xoxo
