Skip to content. The house features a nice kitchen with good appliances, a washer and dryer, pantry, back staircase, and doors out to the back patio and front porch. I usually host our families for Christmas here. The dining room has a Jotul wood stove that heats the whole first floor pretty efficiently. Note that the real estate agent asked me to take down some of the art work because it was distracting.
People wanted to stop and talk about the more challenging pieces so I replaced them with groups of framed etchings that used to belong to our families and other small prints. The living room pictured above , dining room and kitchen all have amazing floor-to-ceiling windows and glorious morning light. Two rooms on the third floor could be used as bedrooms, too.

Once written down, I could see that the statement, 'The true artist helps the world by revealing mystic truths was on the one hand a totally silly idea and yet, on the other hand, I believed it. It's true and it's not true at the same time. It depends on how you interpret it and how seriously you take yourself For me it's still a very strong thought. The success of Nauman's first New York exhibition at Leo Castelli Gallery in January-February prompted Castelli to suggest that works by the artist using fluorescent tubing be issued in small editions and Nauman authorised Window or wall sign to be produced in an edition of three.
In the same post she received notification that she had won a grant, enough to purchase a pickup truck and an Airstream camper. The voices, too, were in agreement. It took me several years to find out that the cause was an overdeveloped sense of responsibility.
No one is exactly sure where she went. Like Huckleberry Finn , she lit out for the territories, travelling off-grid, into open space. She re-emerged at a cafe and filling station in Cuba, New Mexico in , pulling in and asking the manager if he knew of any land for rent. By chance, his wife had a property available, and so, at the age of 56, Martin moved up to a remote mesa, 20 miles across dirt roads from the nearest highway. No electricity, no phone, no neighbours, there was not even a shelter to move into. For the first few months, she focused her energy on building, working from scratch and mostly alone.
She made a one-room dwelling out of adobe bricks she shaped herself, and then a log-cabin studio from trees she cut down with a chainsaw.
Agnes Martin: the artist mystic who disappeared into the desert
It was in this latter space that she began to inch towards art again, first prints, then drawings, then the luminous work of her maturity. When he arrived, after an arduous journey from New York, she fed him mutton chops and apple pie before allowing him into the studio. There, she showed him five new paintings, made of either horizontal or vertical stripes in ice blue and red so watered it was barely pink. At 62, Martin had found a new language, a mode of expression in which she continued to communicate for 30 more years. Sometimes the bands she made were sombre, in troubled driving strokes of slaty grey, but more often they are buoyant, elegant stacks of dilute acrylic paint.
Layers the colour of sand and apricots, layers the colour of morning sky; flags for a borderless state, a new republic of ease and freedom.

Her process was always the same. She waited until she saw her vision: a tiny full-colour version of the painting to come. Then came the painstaking labour of scaling up, filling pages with scribbled fractions and long division. Next, she would mark two lengths of tape, using a short ruler to pencil the lines on to a gessoed canvas.
Only then did she begin to apply colour, working very fast. If there were displeasing drips or blots or other errors, she would destroy the canvas with a knife or box cutter, sometimes even hurling it off the mesa, before beginning again once or twice or seven times: every mark in a Martin painting is intentional, wholly meant. Their meticulous geometries have intense effects on the viewer. At the London outpost of Pace, I saw Untitled 2, : five blue bands separated by four repeating runners of white, watery orange and salmon pink.
Up close, the pencil lines wobbled over the weave like an ECG. There were two hairs stuck to the canvas; five peach splatters the size of fingernails. The eye seized on these small details, on the infinitesimally darker patches where two brush strokes had collided, because there was nothing else to grasp: no view, no closure, just a radiant openness, as if the ocean had come into the windowless room.

The grids in particular seem to attract embellishment. Martin herself thought it was narcissistic, a kind of horror vacui. Learning to withstand emptiness was her own speciality, her given task. Her years in New Mexico were marked by a profound withdrawal from worldly things, a life of renunciation and restriction that often sounds punishingly masochistic, though Martin insisted the intention was spiritual, an ongoing war against the sin of pride. The voices were strict in their limitations. Over the winter of she lived off nothing but preserved home-grown tomatoes, walnuts and hard cheese.
Another winter it was Knox gelatin mixed with orange juice and bananas. When she was evicted from the mesa after an argument with the owners, she rang Glimcher, telling him she had lost everything, even her clothes. During this period, she began to give public lectures that managed to be both bossy and self-effacing, mixing the language of Zen sermons with the babyish burblings and deliberate repetitions of Gertrude Stein, whose poems she was fond of declaiming.
Martin was adept at using language opaquely, creating a screen of words that could veil her from the gaze of the world. Like her enigmatic, resistant paintings, her statements are designed to express something beyond the reach of ordinary understanding, weapons in a campaign to devalue the material and elevate the abstract.
