Postminimalism

Postminimalism was first used as a term in 1971 to describe the reaction of artists against the timelessness of Minimalism. Artists of Postminimalism can work within the disciplines of Earthworks, Performance Art, Conceptual Art and Process Art. Generally, there is a reintroduction of the hand of the artist and a rejection of commercialism in Postminimalism. Sculptor Eva Hesse was the first artist to be referred to as Postminimal. Her work emphasizes the handmade and objects that are unique and symbolic. These aspects can be applied to the art of many other Postminimal artists who invested in the importance of forms that both symbolically referred to other images and maintained the purity of shape prevalent in Minimalism.

These were larger than I thought they'd be, but they are *adorable.* They stick well, and are perfect for a lot of different applications.

I've used 1-Shot for over thirty years, mainly for boat pin-striping, lettering and also for main-body colors. I love it's easy application, glossy finish and durability. Also, the color choices are versatile. It is comparable to many polyurethane enamels (one-part boat paints).
