Agnes Martin: The Distillation of Color
Produced in conjunction with the exhibition of the same name held at PACE, NYC 2021, this book brings new voices to the scholarship around Martin’s work. In a personal introduction, Pace President and CEO Marc Glimcher reflects on his time with the artist at her home in New Mexico. Lively essays by Durga Chew-Bose, Bruce Hainley, and Olivia Laing explore themes of color and solitude. Martin’s own contemplative writings and an illustrated chronology of her career from 1972 to 1992 by Andria Hickey also figure in the book, and its design and colored paper sections hint at the artist’s singular approach to painting.
