Phew. Beautiful piece. If you haven’t read the writing of Agnes Martin, you’re in for a treat.

Hi Richard,

Funny you mention Martin. I first encountered Agnes Martin through her book “Writings” in my late teens. It made a profound impression on me and still does. If you search this blog for Martin you will find a fair bit of material. She was really extraordinary. The poet, Leonard Cohen once said that the discovery of the surrealist poems of Federico Garcia Lorca, “ruined his life.” It forced him to embark on the path of a poet. Similarly, I feel that encountering Martin was instrumental in pushing me in the direction of search. It was as though I came to the realization that this world is not enough.

most warm regards,

Luke
