_ Agnes Martin
My artistic journey has been full of experimentation in various mediums—watercolor, encaustic, mixed media, printmaking and abstract painting. My desire to work across mediums reflects my life philosophy which is to seek out diversity, strive for balance, and to gain a comfort in a broad range of experiences. I never want to get too comfortable with the status quo. Working in a variety of mediums allows me to discover new aspects of myself and to give my voice a different language.
Having been involved in the fashion world for over twenty-five years, I developed a love of imagery, color, curves, texture and shape. My eye is always looking for new ways to create, mix and combine disparate life elements in ways that are unconventional, thought provoking, and inspiring. I am in constant awe of the immense beauty that exists in both the natural and human world and am always looking for ways to make the connection between the two—believing that we are all one collective energy and capable of doing a collaborative and sensual dance. I believe that art is a profound way to mimic our life journeys. It’s a way to create both beauty and meaning for the things that are often too difficult to put into words. My art is a celebration of color, light, consciousness, culture and transformation.
