Agnes Martin

Agnes Martin (1912-2004) is another one of my favorite painters.  While photographs can never capture the effect her work has on the viewer, I wanted to share her work as I have been thinking about it recently.  I remember standing at Dia Beacon looking at one of her paintings and being enveloped into the world of subtle color.  The noticeable traces her hand left when creating grids and stripes adds to the subtle vibration of her work.  I find them to be very powerful pieces- and they remind me about the power of simplicity when there is authenticity.
