Agnes Martin – On Inspiration

Beautiful interview with Agnes Martin. Talks of becoming vacant and capable of channeling inspiration without letting an idea, or thought of the self come between the inspiration and the manifestation of that inspiration in art. She has trained herself to stop thinking, doesn’t believe intellectual facts, and has actively cleared her mind so that she may clearly see when an inspiration enters her, as though from the outside.
