In the 1989 essay Beauty is the Mystery of Life Agnes Martin wrote, “Composition is an absolute mystery. It is dictated by the mind. The artist searches for certain sounds or lines that are acceptable to mind and finally an arrangement of them that is acceptable.” Martin’s work is recognized as pure abstraction, in which space, metaphysics and internal emotional states are explored through painting, drawing and printmaking. Running until 7 October 2018, The Gallery, Winchester’s Discovery C
Agnes Martin: The Untroubled Mind/Works from the Daniel W. Dietrich II Collection is on view from May 19 through October 14, 2018 at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Visionary and idiosyncratic, Agnes Martin (1912–2004) aimed to express universal emotional states in her precise, minimalist compositions. Her earliest works used imagery to reference the real world, but in the 1960s she developed her signature grids, which appear to extend endlessly beyond the canvas. This installation explores th

佩斯祝贺艾格尼·马丁在泰特现代艺术馆的回顾展盛大开幕。此为艺术家于2004年逝世后的首次回顾个展。 作为20世纪的开创性艺术家，马丁以她对线条和色彩的精巧掌控，给艺术史留下了不可磨灭的影响。上世纪50年代晚期她在网格绘画中的进展，如以铅笔为媒材於微妙的色彩区域上轻描线条，标志出抽象画史上的一个转折点，同时也建立了她在接下来几十年间持续精炼的几何及空间语言。近似抽象表现主义艺术家及纯抽象主义者，马丁认为她的作品是对完美的精神追求，使得每一件作品都充满了快乐和美感。她曾写道：“在我们的脑海里有一种对完美的知觉，当我们用双眼去留意，便能看到这种知觉。” 本次回顾个展在泰特现代艺术馆结束展览后，将持续巡展至德国杜塞尔多夫Kunstsammlung NRW，美国洛杉矶艺术博物馆（Los Angeles County Museum of Art）, 以及美国纽约古根海姆博物馆（Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum）。 作为马丁的独家代理画廊，佩斯于1975年第一次举办艺术家沈寂七年後的首次纽约个展。
