Agnes Martin Road Trip
Agnes Martin is recognised for her evocative paintings and restrained style, which was underpinned by her deep conviction in the emotive and expressive power of art. In 1967, just as her art was gaining acclaim, Martin abandoned the artistic community in New York City and went in search of solitude and silence. For almost two years she traveled across the US and Canada before finally settling in New Mexico. From there within tightly prescribed limits she imposed on her own practice Martin was able to continue to make extraordinary, visionary paintings, for over three decades until her death in 2004. Producer Actress (aka Darren J Cunningham) composed an original score inspired by Agnes Martin's artwork and journey across the USA.
