Overview

Systemic art


Quick Reference

Term coined by Lawrence Alloway in 1966 to describe a type of abstract art characterized by the use of very simple standardized forms, usually geometric in character, either in a single concentrated image or repeated in a system arranged according to a clearly visible principle of organization. The chevron paintings of Noland are examples of Systemic art. It has been described as a branch of Minimal art, but Alloway extended the term to cover Colour Field Painting.
