The documentary “Agnes Martin: With My Back to the World,” directed by Mary Lance, has been an inspiration to my practice as a painter. At the time the interview was made, I was in school in Santa Fe, New Mexico and had become familiar with Martin’s work at an exhibition at SITE Santa Fe in 1998. So in putting together this issue, I asked each of the contributors (artists, designers, and musicians) to watch Chuck Smith & Sono Kuwayama’s interview with painter Agnes Martin at her studio in Taos in Nov. 1997. The selected contributors were people who I felt focused in on the quieter moments of making artwork. I asked each of them to create a project based on their studio practice and meditation. Ultimately, all five contributors focused on other artists who have brought inspiration to their own work.
