Agnes Martin: Paintings, Writings, Remembrances
Agnes Martin: Paintings, Writings, Remembrances by Arne Glimcher, Pace Gallery founder, brings together 130 of Martin’s paintings and drawings, with her previously unpublished writings and lecture notes, which vividly illuminate her art. Letters and facsimiles are reprinted in Martin’s own hand, and cut to notebook size, adding an element of intimacy to this incredible publication.
Reblog of the day! We love this piece of Agnes Martin’s writing, “I would like some how to explain that these feelings are the natural state of mind of the artist, that a sense of disappointment and defeat is the essential state of mind for creative work.”

“An artist’s life is an unconventional life. It leads away from the example of the past. It struggles painfully against its own conditioning. It appears to rebel but in reality it is an inspired way of life”. - Agnes Martin

In the 1989 essay Beauty is the Mystery of Life Martin wrote, “Composition is an absolute mystery. It is dictated by the mind. The artist searches for certain sounds or lines that are acceptable to mind and finally an arrangement of them that is acceptable.”
