Tammi Campbell, Dear Agnes (series), 2012.


Dear Agnes (series)

“My interest is in experience that is wordless and silent, and in the fact that this experience can be expressed for me in an artwork that is also wordless and silent.” (Agnes Martin)
How does one respond to the ineffable? The Dear Agnes series is a collection of silent letters in response to Agnes Martin’s work.
