minimalist paintings for sale from the artist


Minimalism is the art of saying a lot with a little. Their apparent simplicity is challenging to the artist - one mark too many or too few and it does not work.

The Japanese artists have perfected their own form of minimalism which generally express "ma". Ma is Japanese for space, gaps, pauses, those vital features that enable us to make sense of it all.

View these new minimal paintings and enjoy the space and a feeling that is difficult if not impossible to express in words. The art whispers its message which is a welcome change for many people who may live in a frantic world.


Simplicity gives birth to inspiration. It is the quality of the very young and of the aged. One who is simple lives from the heart.

I called this minimalist painting  Lights and Brights. The large rectangle has lights and the borders brights but the title is not important. What matters is how and whether you the viewer engage and make your own interpretation.

The two paintings below are called Awakening and have similar designs. I am experimenting with colour and how it sets the feel of the painting. Do these two minimalist paintings feel the same? That's for you to decide.
