The video with painter Agnes Martin was extremely refreshing to watch. The poor audio quality makes it hard for me to make out a lot of the ideas that Martin speaks of throughout the interview, and her aged voice does nothing to aid it either. She discusses various ideas that have influenced her work throughout her life. Agnes martin discusses nature and how it has influenced her work. She responds that people make emotional responses to her work that stems from their view beyond nature. This I believe is a very important concept to keep in mind when viewing her paintings.
