Museum HappeningsAgnes Martin at the Guggenheim

The holiday season goes by very quickly in a flurry of gifts and family time. If you’re looking for some time to reflect, look no further than the The Agnes Martin retrospective at the Guggenheim Museum.

The Agnes Martin retrospective at the Guggenheim Museum features work throughout the artists career which came to prominence in the 1960s. Her abstract work focused on her emotional response to nature and the unity of beauty and nature as a fundamental influence to her canvas works etc. Perspective is key in viewing her work at this particular exhibit because the space (the Guggenheim rotunda) lends itself to viewing the work up-close or from a distance which accentuates or blurs the magnificent subtleties that are so ingrained in her abstract minimalist style.
