Untitled #10 1995
  • Artist Rooms
Agnes Martin’s paintings usually comprise horizontal bands of pale colour separated by faint hand-drawn pencil lines. Characterised by geometric abstraction, repetition and simplicity, her work is often associated with Minimalism, but it also alludes to emotional states more characteristic of the Abstract Expressionists. ‘Untitled #10’ was initially exhibited in 1995 at Pace Wildenstein Gallery in New York as part of the first series of paintings Martin produced after moving from a remote rural area in New Mexico to a new studio and home in the town of Taos. This series of untitled and sequentially numbered paintings were inspired by the New Mexico desert landscape.
