"I want people, when they look at my paintings to have the same feelings they experience when they look at a Landscape.... But it's really about the feeling of beauty and freedom."
-Agnes Martin (1993)
Congratulations Women today is our day.
I am using the opportunity to dwell on the significant female artist Agnes Martin. She was a Canadian/American Artist. Minimalist/Abstract expressionist.
There are "Artist Rooms" at the Tate Modern at the moment, dedicated to specific Artists.
In one of the rooms you can see all of these Agnes Martin paintings hanging silently together or should I say calmly loud? There is something about people that speak softer and lower... they sometimes bring a lot of strength and confidence with them, you have to stop up and listen.
I feel that Agnes Martin makes a mark on Art History by her female touch on minimalism. Her shimmering light colors and simple lines actually manifest themselves as bold and brave.
