||Internationally renowned painter Agnes Martin was designated by ARTnews Magazine as one of the world's top-ten living artists. This documentary was shot over a period of four years, from 1998 through 2002, Martin's ninetieth year. Interviews with the artist are inter-cut with shots at her studio in Taos, New Mexico, with photographs and archival footage, and with images of her work from over five decades. Martin speaks about her work, her working methods, her life as an artist, and her views about the creative process. She also discusses her film, "Gabriel" and reads from her poetry and lectures.
