Citações Agnes Martin

„Bring ice, thanks, Agnes“

—  Agnes Martin

as quoted by Olivia Laing, in 'Agnes Martin: the artist mystic who disappeared into the desert' https://www.theguardian.com/artanddesign/2015/may/22/agnes-martin-the-artist-mystic-who-disappeared-into-the-desert, The Guardian, 22 May 2015
In June 1974, she appeared out of the blue at Pace gallery [in New York] and asked if they'd like to show her new work. She invited Glimcher to come to Mexico and view it, posting him a hand-drawn map, at the bottom of which she had scrawled 'bring ice thanks Agnes'. When he arrived she showed him five new paintings, made of either horizontal or vertical stripes in ice blue and red so watered it was barely pink. At 62, Martin had found a new visual language

Martin's quote about the landscape of her youth in Macklin, Saskatchewan, where her parents Malcolm and Margaret Martin farmed the vast, sometimes hard land
after 2000

„Nature is like parting a curtain, you go into it. I want to draw a certain response like this.... that quality of response from people when they leave themselves behind, often experienced in nature, an experience of simple joy... My paintings are about merging, about formlessness... A world without objects, without interruption.“

—  Agnes Martin

1960's

„My [artworks] have neither object nor space nor line nor anything – no forms. They are light, lightness, about merging, about formlessness, breaking down form. You wouldn’t think of form by the ocean. You can go in if you don’t encounter anything. A world without objects, without interruption, making a work without interruption or obstacle. It is to accept the necessity of this simple, direct going into a field of vision as you could cross and empty beach to look at the ocean.“

—  Agnes Martin

„I was very happy. I thought I would cut my way through life.... victory after victory, [laughing.. ] Well, I adjusted as soon as they carried me into my mother. Half of my victories fell to the ground.. [she pauses].. My mother had victories.“

—  Agnes Martin
