Paris — New York

Richard Tuttle

Born in 1941, Rahway, New Jersey.


Richard Tuttle's work, born on the fringes of American minimalism in the early 1960s, is particularly singular. Whether it be painting, sculpture, engraving, installation, or concept, he borrows from all these fields with great freedom, mixing and subverting them with an immutable delicacy, but also with great determination. The use of unusual, humble and fragile materials is his trademark. He brings them to life with a light and inspired touch. An experimenter in paradoxes, he cultivates a sense of the monumental in the minuscule and makes the apparent fragility of his sculpture its strength.
