    45Agnes Martin is probably my favourite painter and this is definitely one of the better books written about her work including a beautiful section about her film Gabriel One of the most incredible things about Martin's paintings is the fact that they're almost impossible to fully reproduce the effect of in photography The way the paintings play with your perception is really something that can only be captured by standing directly in front of one and just letting everything else fade from your mind While one could complain about the fact this book is mostly essays and actually has very few images of Martin's work I would argue that's really one of its greatest strengths If the effect of the paintings can't be fully conveyed by showing someone a photograph then why not just get a group of writers to convey their personal experiences with these paintings? With Martin's paintings it really is one of the few times where a photograph actually can't express than a thousand words

    A rather fine book though the essays sometimes pretzel themselves trying to force the plain spoken even naive Martin into their pre existing conceptions often missing imho the near unuantifiable poetry and power in the works My main carp is that granted the huge lack in printed reproductive uality the inclusion of only 32 color plates seems unnecessarily scant Sure you're going to miss out on 90% of the experience anyway but it would have been nice to have had as full a representation as possible
