Time is the Real Masterpiece

This week I listened to the Anthropocene reviewed podcast hosted by John Green, and in which episode he spoke about the artist Agnes Martin. He detailed parts of her life and different works that she had made including her piece entitled “With My Back to the World.” The real thing that struck me though in this episode however wasn’t really her amazing work or all of the interesting information that John Green goes through. To me, what I find amazing is that Agnes never even felt proud of her art pieces until she was in her 50's despite her works being beautiful before that. This brings up the idea that even if we feel ashamed that others can see the beauty in us. In time, once we have gone through more in life, we can also learn to see the beauty and become proud of ourselves for what we have accomplished. Time can show us how things play out and what is really important and beautiful in life and at the end of it all we can look back and see the beauty in everything. This podcast was very well spoken and I encourage everyone to listen to it as well as view Agnes Martin’s artworks.
