Chicano Minimalism

Fellow artists have dubbed the artwork of Ernest M. Saenz as Chicano Minimalism.

Minimalism is contemporary art and music with origins in the 1960s that emphasized simplicity and objectivity. Reacting against the formal excesses and raw emotionalism of abstract expressionism, practitioners of minimal art (also sometimes called ABC art) strive to focus attention on the object as an object, reducing its historical and expressive content to the bare minimum.
