structurism

Discipline: Art

(1952)

Theory developed by the American artist CHARLES BIEDER, and so named to distinguish it from an earlier concept of 'constructionism'.

With the use of abstract reliefs he attempted to synthesize qualities of painting, sculpture and architecture which he viewed as structural processes of nature.

Some confusion has arisen about the application of this term to minimalism.
