Richard Tuttle (American, b. 1941) Richard Tuttle had his first solo show in 1965 at the Betty Parson Gallery in New York. Creating simple forms with simple materials, Tuttle explores formal elements such as line, composition, balance and space. Tuttle works with the relationships between mediums, drawing lines with wire as well as using materials such as plywood, rope, cardboard, hardware and other mass-produced, industrial materials. Often assembling works with a wall as the picture plane, Tuttle intuitively plays with perception based on light and shadow. Tuttle’s works are included in museum collections such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam; the Musee Nationale d’Art Moderne in Paris and the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, DC among others.
