New Mexico Museum of Art, Public Lecture: SUBTLE SHADES DRAW AN OPENING PATH: THE POETIC WORK OF AGNES MARTIN’S ART, by Utako Shindo


"Utako Shindo Ph.D. is a Tokyo Artist, whose studio and research pursuits are the untranslatability of art and nuanced shadow-light as poetic medium. Her year-long project based in New Mexico traced Martin’s artistic path — scholarly and experientially. She is seeking a deeper understanding of how Martin’s abstractions embody ineffable life and express universal emotions. In turn, Shindo’s own art now reflects her understanding of Martin’s path. She was a Japanese government creative fellow and a resident at Forde Visser Archive Southwest, Santa Fe in 2019." —New Mexico Museum of Art (Februay 2020)
