Has anyone heard of an art trend called "neo-minimalism?" If you are reading into minimalism you will probably run into this term and think that this is a new minimalist trend. I've been working with minimalist art form through paintings and would like to share my opinion that "neo-minimalism" is not at all minimalist as the name suggests.
"Neo-minimalism" is said to carry some minimalist elements but it also has characteristics of many other art trends, like conceptual art and pop art. I think because of these other influences, it should not be called "neo-minimalism." I mean how can something be sophisticated and basic at the same time?
They also call this art trend "Neo Geo" which is a much more suitable name because it does heavily use geometric shapes.
