Endless White

When I heard endless white by Flying Lotus I thought instantly of Agnes Martin. And the way I feel about her. End l e s s white. When I sew embroideries I reference her paintings. "Reinterpreting."

I think you can see how and why my old obsession with tape would lead me to love her work. I appreciate that it is so organized, painstaking, and if you want it to be, referential.

Agnes Martin was a loner. Sometimes I'm afraid to admit that I'm a bit of a loner myself, but then I realize what a good time I'm having and say 'f**k it'.

"My paintings are not about what is seen. They are about what is
known forever in the mind."
Agnes Martin .
