Assignment 1 Project Proposal
After reading Michael Freied’s essay titled, “Shape and Form”, which talks about Frank Stella’s new paintings I have decided to look more in-depth at the art movement Minimalism for my main project this term. I intend to try and answer a few of the questions surrounding minimalism as an art movement, and the many questions and queries revolving around the actual art produced from this movement, such as;
How is it art ?
Is there any beauty within the art produced ?
What is the artist trying to tell the viewer?
What skills and techniques does the artist use to create his or hers works?
Initially I will look deeper into Frank Stella’s works by using books from the library, the internet and by talking to practicing artists who have heard or seen some of his works. I shall then be moving on to looking at photographers who produce works based around the same key components of minimalism. Below is a small selection of photographers I am intending to research in greater depth :
Gary Gakout, Christian Memetic, Ryan Bowman, Wilfried and many more.
