Maximalism, a direct response against minimalism favoring the idea "More is More." A gross amount of loud, vibrant colors, textures, and patterns. Maximalism is all about adding extra embellishments and then the extra layer, and then adding even more on top of that. Maximalism is often times compared to ostentatious displays of the extensive possessions of the higher class or the obsessive collecting of hoarders. This huge gap left for interpretation intrigues me. The showy nature of Maximalism is contructed using fabrics, blankets, and wrapping paper that I was able to find
at thrift stores.
