The exhibition will span the full spectrum of media and feature a selection of Tuttle’s recent works, including remarkable pieces from the Epigrams series. Assemblages, installations, sculptures and works on paper will be presented in the exhibition.

Tuttle is one of the most significant artists working today. Since the mid-1960s, he has created an extraordinarily varied body of work that eludes historical or stylistic categorization. Tuttle’s work exists in the space between painting, sculpture, poetry and drawing. Language, spatial relationship, and scale are also central concerns for the artist.

In Tuttle’s lyrical oeuvre, materials and presentation are always interrelated, with the artist consistently guiding viewer’s aesthetic experience. He draws beauty out of humble materials including cardboard and aluminum, here by reflecting the fragility of the world. Works such as 13 Angels for Jack and Space is Shape continue Tuttle’s exploration of line and volume and reach poetic dimensions. Without a specific reference point, these pieces reflect a sense of spirituality and mirror the artist’s deep intellectual curiosity.

I use the material to question itself, or to question the very thing, which is already 'the picture,' I think. But I may have fallen in love during this long process, not to mention my response to the sensuality of things, to seeing how the thing is embedded in a singular, appealing matrix of matter, lost to distinction…by me!

Richard Tuttle

Richard Tuttle is one of the most significant artists working today. Since the mid-1960s, he has created an extraordinarily varied body of work that eludes historical or stylistic categorization. Tuttle’s work exists in the space between painting, sculpture, poetry, assemblage, and drawing. He draws beauty out of humble materials, reflecting the fragility of the world in his poetic works. Without a specific reference point, his investigations of line, volume, color, texture, shape, and form are imbued with a sense of spirituality and informed by a deep intellectual curiosity. Language, spatial relationship, and scale are also central concerns for the artist, who maintains an acute awareness for the viewer’s aesthetic experience.
