Neomodern is a term used to describe a "new simplicity" in art and in reaction to the complexity of postmodern architecture and eclecticism.

Neomodern is also used on occasion to simply denote the contemporary period, from the framework of assuming that the postmodern period is "waning" (see Agent state) and that the central question of the present is how to avoid the predatory results of market economies without asserting a "pre-modern anti-capitalism".

Neomodern artist groupEdit

The neomodern artist group was founded in 1997 by Guy Denning[1] on the premise that the diversity of British contemporary art was being stifled by the state supported art institutions and organisations. The group have no common style or media but there is a bias towards figurative painting in the same manner as the Stuckists. Other artists include Juno Doran, Antony Micallef, Ghislaine Howard and Mark Demsteader.
