Minimal or Minimalist photography is in the tradition of the Minimal Arts of the 20th century. It embodies a style of contemporary photography whose language is simplicity. Her works concentrate on the reduction of pictorial elements to a minimum and the composition of components such as form, colour and line to – often picturesque – compositions.
Minimalist Photographers like Liz Watson find their motives in everyday life. They discover them through a very special view of the world. On the always the same, the banal. Sometimes they are schematic descriptions of the topography, sometimes purely planar abstract compositions. Sometimes detailed, sometimes spacious.
It‘s always a matter of reduction. To show things as they are. What you can discover in them – or what you can discover in yourself, through them. If you only engage with them or see through them. To find something that you were not looking for. For us all this means mindfulness and the works of Galerie Minimal are their visualization.
