Agnes Martin

Agnes Martin is an American abstract minimalist. Within his works can be seen purity, simplicity, truth. His works in some way drive the viewer to them, they are simple, but in the same way so complicated. He was influenced by Taoist philosophy traces of which could be found within his works. Agnes’s ideas reflect on my state of mind, and the way I see my art practice, as search for truth an peace.

“reached zero so that nothing could stand in the way of truth” Mark Rothko.
