The art of LIM

“Poissons des grottes” styrocut, handprinted on Manilla.

The art of LIM. LIM stands for “less is more“. From architecture to painting and poetry, it is a movement also known as minimalism.

To me, LIM  is getting to the essential, in a few strokes and no coming back. The difficult part being no coming back. Refraining the urge to fiddle more and more, add more shadows, elongate a few lines…restraining that feeling of anxiety that translate into adding more.

l’art du peu: LIM, less is more,  ou moins c’est plus. Un mouvement, le minimalisme , en architecture, peinture, poésie .

Pour moi, LIM, c’est arriver à l’essentiel en peu de lignes, sans retouches. La difficulté réside dans le “sans retouches”. Retenir l’envie de pinailler encore et encore, d’ajouter des ombres, d’allonger des lignes…contenir ce sentiment d’anxiété qui se traduit toujours par en faire plus.
