Richard Tuttle is one of the most singular and influential artists working today, whose extraordinary work eludes classification and dissolves the boundaries of sculpture, painting, drawing, installation and printmaking. Since his first exhibition in New York in 1965, Richard Tuttle has employed the strongest of soft touches on a groundbreaking exploration into the poetry of form, color, line and the material. He has consistently expanded our understanding of the art object’s relationship to space and subtly redefined our expectations of sculpture.
Matter will be Richard Tuttle’s first solo exhibition in Paris since 2001, and will feature a new series of wall works made while he was in residence at the Getty Research Center in Los Angeles from September 2012 through June 2013. Each work consists of cotton pulp that has been dyed and fixed to a shaped matrix of wire mesh, installed on the wall at precise heights.
