I have a lot of respect for Agnes Martin. I was lucky enough to see LACMA’s most recent exhibit (and only full US exhibit of her works, I believe) on a trip I took to LA with some friends recently.
I could have stayed in that hall all day. Luckily we had gone on a relatively peaceful day, so we had the exhibit all to ourselves. It was so calming and beautiful– I hesitantly asked the guard if photos were allowed in that exhibit (while silently trying to communicate that I had been waiting to be here to see her works for months), and luckily he said we were in the clear.
I think that these pictures capture a small amount of the serenity and honesty of the exhibit, and looking back on them now, I’m trying to reflect on how I can keep this feeling and that appreciation from those moments and apply it to my life.
More to come soon. <3 Thanks for reading!
