Agnes Martin: The Islands

Published by Richter Verlag.
Essay by Heinz Liesbrock.

The Islands--a 1979 group of 12 identically large square paintings--is a body of work especially suitable for gaining insight into the modalities of the visual in Agnes Martin's work. An element that is common to all the canvases is the matte white color that absorbs the surrounding light but only partially radiates it back, as well as the structure of fine horizontal lines drawn in pencil. The reproductions of Martin's work in this book are of the highest quality, especially in light of the fact that her pictures are generally not ideal for reproduction, as, according to the artist, they are light and luminous and deal with fusion and formlessness, i.e., the dissolution of form. In creating this work, Martin, in a certain sense, arrives almost to the point of borderline visibility.

Agnes Martin: The Nineties And BeyondAgnes Martin: The Nineties And Beyond

Published by Hatje Cantz Publishers.
Essay by Ned Rifkin.

Agnes Martin has spent every morning for the past 40 years working in her New Mexico studio, producing square abstract paintings that consist of graphite horizontal lines across fields of white, gray, or pale colors. Though her work superficially belongs to the history of Minimalism, Martin considers her paintings the abstract expression of positive inner states of existence. Published on the occasion of her 90th birthday, this catalogue presents the iconic serenity and elegant geometry of her canvasses from the past decade, in a format complimentary to Martin's own immutable aesthetic.

Agnes Martin (Dia)Agnes Martin (Dia)

Published by Yale/DIA.

Gorgeously quiet in color and composition, Agnes Martinís paintings have a distinctive grace that sets them apart from those of the Abstract Expressionists of her day and the Minimalist artists she inspired. Martin attributed her grid-based works to metaphysical motivations, lending a serene complexity to her oeuvre that has defied any easy categorization. Perhaps for this reason, critical and scholarly analysis of her paintings has been scarceóuntil now. This important new anthology brings together the most current scholarship on Martinís paintings by twelve multidisciplinary essayists who consider various aspects of the artistís four-decade career.

Organized by Dia Art Foundation, whose extensive holdings of Martinís paintings and ambitions to support in-depth research on the works are unparalleled, the publication brings renewed focus and energy to Martinís career and her contributions to the art historical narrative.
