Agnes Martin is being celebrated in a career retrospective show, organized by Tate Modern and LACMA, currently on view at the Guggenheim Museum in New York. Her restrained color palettes and motifs function as visual meditations, evoking a sense of peace. Martin’s work is tremendously influential to my own artistic practice and design sensibility. The following three interiors are inspired by her serene aesthetic.
