About Richard Tuttle

Richard Tuttle’s multifarious oeuvre is a study in scale and line using common materials that have been inventively assembled and exhibited. Much of Tuttle’s work rethinks the potential of the line; the installation Ten Kinds of Memory and Memory Itself (1973) featured a pencil line that detached from the wall it was drawn on and continued as string along the floor. Tuttle’s sculptures experiment with space in similarly inspired ways and are constructed using a panoply of industrial and organic materials, including shrink wrap, tape, metal, paper, and balloons.

American, b. 1941, Rahway, New Jersey, based in New Mexico & New York
