Answer to an Inquiry.
My formats are square, but the grids never are absolutely
square; they are rectangles, a little bit off square, making a
sort of contradiction, a dissonance, though I didn’t set out to do
it that way. When I cover the square surface with rectangles, it
lightens the weight of the square, destroys its power.
Agnes Martin, Writings 1992
