"When I first made a grid I happened to be thinking of the innocence of trees and then a grid came into my mind and I thought it represented innocence, and I still do, and so I painted it and then I was satisfied. I thought, this is my vision." - Agnes Martin

Still thinking about the Agnes Martin Innocent Love series that I saw upstate at The DIA last weekend for Father's Day. After all of these years, Agnes Martin's work still fascinates me like no other. Seeing the faint pencil lines up close in her paintings just kills me. Her paintings don't reproduce well to photos or print (it truly needs to be seen in person), but this book does a good job and I love the cover with her handwriting.

Favorite page from the Ammann Agnes book. The new Mociun store is so close to my house, still wear my little turquoise necklace almost every day.
