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 travelled 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.
In this film we invited producer Actress aka Darren J Cunningham to compose an original score inspired by Martin’s artwork and journey across the US.
