This edition of Celebrating Diversity I want to focus on two extremes of art: Extremely detailed and realistic works and minimal and abstract art. Both tendencies or trends have their place and time in art and history and are appreciated by many people. Not always does one person like both, but to me personally, art has always been more about feeling, than about complexity. Something simple can touch me emotionally as well as something blasting with details. Art is just as individual as every human being!
How do you feel about these two extremes?
- Do you prefer one over the other?
- Do you think minimal art is easy and can be done by anybody?
- Does talent to work with lots of details and perfection make you automatically a good artist?
I hope you enjoyed the article and the series
