While working on a recently published memoir of my seven years as Agnes Martin’s assistant (1977-1984), I began to explore my lifelong fascination with the vast landscae 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 some of the unbearable excesses of civilization. I have chosen to stay out of the limelight in order to preserve the freedom to pursue my personal vision.
