LA Sunset 2 by Donald Woodman
I became interested in the horizon while working as Agnes Martin’s assistant (1977-1984, Agnes Martin and Me). She spent a lot of time staring at the vast New Mexico sky. Recently, I began to explore my own fascination with the vast landscape of the Southwest and the focal point of the horizon line; where earth and sky meet. For most of my career, New Mexico has provided me with a respite from what I see as some of the unbearable excesses of civilization. I have chosen to stay out of the mainstream in order to preserve the freedom to pursue my personal vision.
