The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s exhibition Richard Tuttle: The Critical Edge, features six striking new works specifically created for the museum. All created in 2015, the works are made with layers of cut and sewn pieces of fabric that Tuttle sourced in New York and Maine.
Together they elaborate the artist’s interest in texture and material, likewise his longstanding use of textile as a medium. Once assembled, these fragments generate lively patterns of varying hues and opacity. A suite of nine watercolors will accompany the assemblages.
