De Brock is pleased to present “Drawn Minimalism”, opening on November 5th.

A captivating journey into the heart of American Minimalism, where simplicity and depth converge on the delicate canvas of paper. In this thought-provoking group exhibition, we invite you to immerse yourself in the purity of form, the subtlety of color, and the power of spatial relationships that define this influential art movement.

Minimalism emerged in the mid-20th century as a response to the complexities of the era. It sought to strip away the extraneous, leaving behind only the essential elements of art. What remains are works that radiate a quiet, yet profound, resonance.

In “Drawn Minimalism" we celebrate this aesthetic rigor as applied to the versatile medium of paper. These artists, pioneers in their own right, have harnessed the minimalistic principles of simplicity, precision, and clarity to create a body of work that invites contemplation and introspection.

As you navigate the gallery, you'll encounter works that utilize geometric shapes, monochromatic palettes, and meticulous lines to create a sense of harmony and balance. Through these deceptively straightforward compositions, the artists provoke a dialogue between the viewer and the artwork, challenging us to find meaning in the spaces between.

Minimalism on paper invites us to examine the very essence of visual expression. Each stroke, each absence of color, and each carefully measured dimension speaks volumes about the human connection to art. These pieces remind us that art is not only about what is seen but also about what is felt and understood.

The exhibition will include work by Carl Andre, Sol LeWitt, Robert Mangold and Robert Morris.

The opening reception will be held on November 5th from noon till three.
