Agnes Martin at the Guggenheim

Guggenheim exhibition Agnes Martin

Yesterday went to see the Agnes Martin show before it closed. It was sublime. Only took a couple pics because I was in a be here now state of mind. The alcoves of the Rotunda were like little chapels to one or two pieces. The 72 inch square pieces were solitary while the 60 inch squares were paired. The pairings were very thoughtful.

The light was a bit too peachy for me and the chrome frames interfered with the serenity of the work; they needed a matte finish. But all in all it was an inspiring show. I had hoped to also visit the Carmen Herrera show at the Whitney but couldn't absorb anything more for the day. I'm ready to get back into the studio.
