I have never been to Marfa, Texas,
but with Agathe, it's a nexus
between a brief run of diffusing stains,
and the words she hid in her canvas.- Drenched Co

Comment: "If it is a landscape that Agathe is painting, she is leaving her erstwhile expressive paintings of color planes and psychological interiors for a deceptively complex subject. But Agathe avoids the scourge of the mediocre, dissatisfying landscape painting by treating the surface of her canvas just enough to bring the texture of the canvas to leap out to her cause. Just as Marfa, Texas left a stain on her sight, Agathe has successfully transferred this irrational disorientation of her senses onto canvas by staining it, microscopically revealing, willing, each ridge, each bump, each knot to manifest their physical solidity to achieve the impossible. Best work she has done since Fumio Nanjo's 1st Singapore Biennale exhibition in 2006." - FaSa
