Featuring 60 color and 40 black-and-white plates, the volume profiles the Saskatchewan-born artist, now 80, who participated in the heyday of New York abstract expressionism and later settled in New Mexico.

PaceWildenstein (January 15, 2002)

ISBN: 3775711651 “Agnes Martin has spent every morning for the past 40 years working in her New Mexico studio, producing square abstract paintings that consist of graphite horizontal lines across fields of white, gray, or pale colors. Though her work superficially belongs to the history of Minimalism, Martin considers her paintings the abstract expression of positive inner states of existence. Published on the occasion of her 90th birthday, this catalogue presents the iconic serenity and elegant geometry of her canvasses from the past decade, in a format complimentary to Martin’s own immutable aesthetic.”

In a series of articles, some of which were apparently talks given to art students, she delves into consciousness, creativity, judgment, personal development, self-assurance, transcendence, meaning, value.
