Minimalism (SAQA Global Exhibition)


Order. Simplicity. Harmony. Minimalism is line, shape, form, and color combined to simply highlight the very essence of the medium and materials used to create art. Erasing the distinctions between mediums to call attention to the artwork itself, without expectation of emotion or deep meaning. In the words of Frank Stella, “What you see is what you see.” A pure form of beauty.

Exhibition Benefactor: Frank Klein

Exhibition Schedule

European Patchwork Meeting, September 2023
