In the history of art, time is not frequently taken up as the artistic topic in itself. While time has been sporadically present in the work of certain single artists such as Claude Monet or within movements like Futurism, where speed and change were highlighted, only over the past several decades, has time become a more explicit topic in art. In this article, time is addressed by discussing the work and thoughts of three contemporary artists who have taken this concept as a guiding motif in their work: Roman Opalka, Tatsuo Miyajima, and Rene Rietmeyer. Their work makes clear that time in art is strongly related to actual and individual life-time and is concerned with creating an attentiveness to human existence in relation to time as a continuing entity.
