ARTIST PROFILE 01
Born in Boston, May 12, 1936. One of the leading post-war American minimalist abstract painters. Famously known for painted and sculpted works alike. Minimal art is a form of minimalist visual expression in which decorative and expository elements are removed to the greatest extent possible, leaving simple colors and forms that eschew complexity. The artist’s early work involved symmetrical pieces featuring simple stripes and other forms. Beginning in the 1980s, the work underwent major thematic changes, with a wide range of colors being incorporated, twisted planes, and works that seem to burst from the canvas and go beyond the conventions of two dimensional artwork. The result is a dynamic oeuvre that straddles the space between painting and sculpture.
