BOOM! Right here, right now in New York City the Agnes Martin show is happening at the Guggenheim Museum on Fifth Avenue between 88th and 89th Streets. Agnes Martin is/was a minimalist painter from the early 60s until her death in 2004. . .she did lots of work with grids, lines, and subtle shades of color. . .this is the first time that so much of her work has been on display in one location, and it is quite an event.
The Guggenheim is the perfect place for this show. . .all of her paintings and drawings are laid out chronologically from the bottom of the magnificent circular Frank Lloyd Wright-designed rotunda up to the very top. . .what a journey through fifty years of this artists life and work. And what an honor to be alive now and have the opportunity to take in these subtle works that are quite lovely and that move us toward a meditative state as we move from one work to the next…ommm!
Art…creativity…is the one thing that separates us from the animal kingdom, and it is joyous to celebrate this each and every day and especially when a show like this is on in a magnificent museum like this one. . .mmmm, aaaahh! Get on over here, and check this stuff out. . .you will be intrigued–I gar-ron-taaaayy!
I send you stimulating and meditative vibes from the Agnes Martin show here in Manhattan. . .feel them. . .they are oh-so-worthy of your attention.
