Artist Statement

Agnes Martin Barley

Statement 

My work attempts to crystallize harmony by distilling linear and spacial relationships into revelations of place - place being a metaphor for context. The works are diagrams that chart relationships to oneself or to the world from a marked vantage point or place. 

While this pursuit of place runs through my paintings, I am currently working with collage using acrylic on cut paper. The sculpted forms in this series explore folds of space in search of pure terrain. The collages are based on the structure of waves. The architecture of a wave exist in a given moment and light. Waves are physical representations of transitory states of perfection and metaphors for a fleeting glimpse of paradise well as poetic vehicles for my search for place.
