The minimalist emerged in New York in the early 1960s among artists who were self-consciously renouncing recent art they thought had become stale and academic. It about something normal and simple, something less is more. Painters and sculptors avoided overt symbolism and emotional content, but instead called attention to the materiality of the works. By the end of the 1970s.
Clock with blue background is remind about time that we use to see everyday look like it melt in my opinion is about when you spend time with a nonsense thing. Second is a pipe the classic one before human made a cigarette now a day with a blue background i think the artist want we to think about bad habit for health because Pipe if you smoking a lot if will effect to your body. In my opinion I like image number 1 because when you lost the time for something time will not comeback again for any reason or excuse. Influencing minimalism for artist now a day i think is from movie poster , logo , character of cartoon that they see when they was young or other artist work. I like minimalism because it simple , easy to look , simple tone that relax when i look. If i buy a house i will use a minimalism as a result of i have to stay in that more than one year i want something that simple , neat and not bored that why i choose Minimalism.
