Agnes Martin

“We all have the same inner life. The difference lies in the recognition. The artist has to recognize what it is.”

          Agnes Martin incorporates craft and process to create simple,  obssessive pieces that are recognized under the Minimalist movement. I love looking at her work because there’s a certain quietness and meditation, which I find to be true about sewing, and hope to capture with part of my own work. I am engaged by essentially nothingness, but so  much–meaning that it is the process behind each piece that’s intriguing. There seems to be high thought, yet low imagery.
