I have always been partial to Frank Stella's hard edged minimalist artwork of the late 1950's and 60's. But that's not to say his maximalist pieces done as recently as this decade, don't have some exciting things happening in them too, including relief elements, which are so helpful for my students who have visual impairments. Our Stella inspired, maximalist cardboard relief sculptures were made to go all out in terms of patterns, shapes, and brush strokes popping out.
Minimalism whispers to us that that less is more, where the maximalism philosophy shouts more is more! And when my students finished these projects, they were shouting for more!
