spare / theme
Minimalist but not barren, the spare indulges only what is absolutely necessary. It models a certain cleanliness, in that it's never excessive, never spilling over: just a touch, a flare here and there.
Themes represent basic categories of thought, emotion, or value. While our assignment of themes may at times seem arbitrary or whimsical, they serve to link together artists and movements along non- hierarchial pathways. Follow the themes to look for new disciplines that share qualities with those you already like, or to open up new worlds of Art and Culture.
