Anne Truitt - Minimalism Art

In 1949 Truitt studied sculpture for one academic year at the Institute of Contemporary Art in Washington, D.C., followed by three months at the Dallas Museum of Fine Art. Following this formal training, she experimented with various media and techniques, including clay, cast cement and plaster, and steel welding. In 1961 Truitt began to work in the style for which she later became known: painting multiple delicate layers of color characterized by subtle variations onto wooden constructions fabricated in accordance with scale drawings; the structural elements of these sculptures constitute armatures supporting color. Writing in April 1965, Truitt stated: «What is important to me is not geometrical shape per se, or color per se, but to make a relationship between shape and color which feels to me like my experience. To make what feels to me like reality.»

Mathias Goeritz - Abstract Sculpture

«Mathias Goeritz was a German-born Mexican sculptor. He is best known for his interest in what he called “emotional architecture,” which was a belief in objects that elicited an emotional response rather than objects purely for functionality. Goeritz’s public sculptures were often large-scale and inspired by prehistoric cave paintings and monoliths. Born on April 4, 1915 in Danzig, Germany (now Gdansk, Poland), the artist grew up in Berlin. He went on to study philosophy and the history of art at the Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität in Bonn, while also studying art under Max Kaus and Hans Orlowski at the Berlin-Charlottenberg School of Arts and Crafts. Goeritz left Germany in 1941 to escape World War II, first settling in Morocco, then Spain, and then in Mexico, where he worked as a teacher.»

Alberto Carneiro - Conceptualism - Ecological Art

“Alberto Carneiro ( 20 September 1937 – Porto, 15 April 2017) was a Portuguese artist. In London he makes contact with the newly emerging artistic trends at the end of the 1960s, notably with the minimal and British Conceptual Art. From there develops innovative projects for the Portuguese context, including The cane field: metamorphosis memory of an absent body (1968) and A forest to your dreams (1970), which approaches the Land Art, revealing a special attention to the values of an art of ‘involvement’, which leaves the primacy of manual labor to consider the conceptual design, a progressive dematerialization of the artwork. This anthropological vision of artistic creativity is combined with an approach to the Eastern philosophies of the essence and nature (Zen Buddhism, Tantra) and take you to draw up the 'Manifesto of Ecological Art’ ’(1968-72) that rejects the Western dualism sensuality / spirituality and promotes the rehabilitation of the easiest things in the mean of aesthetic communication. “

Robert Morris - Spectral Shrouds - Conceptual Art

Robert Morris (1931 — 2018 )was an American sculptor, conceptual artist and writer.
“Robert Morris has comported himself for decades as the least minimal of the original minimalists. While sharing most of the core group’s characteristics — including the complementary artist/writer mode — he has in both word and deed proved more committed than the others to contingency and experimentation. Alternating, often abruptly, between cool objects and evocations of calamity, his artistic outlook remains — as the spot-on title of his collected writings suggests — a Continuous Project Altered Daily. Though no slouch when it comes to minimal severity, his thinking often drifts closer in sensibility to Robert Smithson’s macro riffing than to Donald Judd’s ideological finalities.Minimalist theory made much of the viewer’s movement through space as part of what defined the sculptural.”
