I was curious to this myself, so I looked it up on the net and found more than one definition.

https://www.thefreedic​tionary.com/Minimalist​+art (external link)

From one of those definitions, for minimalism: "A school of abstract painting and sculpture . . ." The word "abstract" disqualifies Eidelweiss's rings–gosh, I knew what they were right away–and most everything else in these 75 pages.

I'm not a scholar of art, I just have my own ideas about how plain and simple a work has to be to fit the category. It'd be no surprise if experts differed on just what counts as minimal.

"...as by the use of basic shapes and monochromatic palettes of primary colors...."
Probably doesn't qualify, but...

Past weekend, I spent some time reading on minimalist photography. There seems to be a rather wide interpretation of it. But here on POTN, the thread is under "Nature & Landscapes." So I have tried not to post any minimalistic photos if they were not somehow related to nature. With that said, here is one that might fit a minimalist definition, even though I don't consider it nature related.

I agree with your post and photo. The interpretation I got from one definition said, that nothing else should distract from the subject.

Sibil, this thread would fit better in Still Life, B/W & Experimental. I post my urban "minimals" here and ignore its Nature & Landscapes location.
