English term or phrase: minimalism
Definition from Bluemoon Art Glossary:
A movement and style of art from the 20th century which attempts to reduce art to the basic geometric shapes with the fewest colors, lines, and textures. Minimal art does not seek to be representational of any object.

Example sentence(s):
  • Though never a self-proclaimed movement, Minimalism refers to painting or sculpture made with an extreme economy of means and reduced to the essentials of geometric abstraction. Guggenheim Museum
  • The reduction of form, the controlled gesture and emotional outburst, the rationalistic behaviour and a sensibilized minimalism – these were the main features of an entirely different standpoint from the one dominating the painting of the preceding decade. Sava Stepanov ON MINIMALISM
  • While many people tend to associate minimalism with painting, the principle is also applied in the creation of musical compositions, theatrical performances, and even interior design. WiseGeek

minimalizam


Definition from Wikipedia:
Minimalizam ili Minimalna umjetnost (1960.-1975.), je umjetnički pokret koji odbacuje u umjetnosti, komentiranje društva, osobni izraz umjetnika. Bazira se na stvaranju predmeta, slika i kipova čija je vrijednost isključivo estetskog karaktera.

Example sentence(s):
  • Minimalizam, također ponekad zvan i ABC umjetnost je intelektualna vrsta umjetnosti koja se naizgled sastoji od vrlo malo elemenata pa je time gledalac primoran analizirati formalna obilježja pristunoga vrlo oprezno. Rad je obično rigorozno geometrijski i uključujue ponavljanje identičnih objekata. Korijeni minimalizma nalaze se u geometrijskim apstrakcijama bauhaus slikara iz doba prije Drugog svjetskog rata, u djelima ruskih konstruktivista kao što je Kazimir Malevich i rumunjskog kipara Constantina Brancuşia. Često se intepretira kao reakcija protiv sirove emocionalnosti apstraktnog ekspresionizma i most prema postmodernoj umjetničkoj praksi. Minimalisti su obično radili djela koja su se sastojala od vrlo jednostavnih geometrijskih likova baziranih na kvadratima i pravokutnicima. Također su koristili boje, lakove i industrijske materijale. Uporaba serijskog ponavljanja pridonijela je njihovu cilju. Minimalistička umjetnost bila je većinom trodimenzionalna ali slikar Frank Stella bio je bitan minimalist. Ostali važni umjetnici bili su Carl Andre, Dan Flavin, Donald Judd, Sol LeWitt, Robert Morris, i Richard Serra. Također postoje snažne poveznice među minimalizmom i konceptualnom umjetnošću. Estetski gledano, minimalizam nudi iznimno pročišćenu vrstu ljepote. Također se može gledati kao predstavljanje kvaliteta kao što su istina, red, jednostavnost i sklad. - "1960s in the USA" courseware Web pages
