Richard Tuttle is one of the most significant artists at work today. His oeuvre over long artistic career of almost half a century since the mid – 1960s comprises an extraordinarily multifarious body of work – sculpture, painting, drawing, collage, installation, poetry and publication – that is beyond categorization. Shared by all his work is a sense of autonomy and independence, and its own features – line, form, texture, color, volume – are woven into fresh and poetic, alternative visual languages that are outside of existing preconceptions or representation systems, and which, through their spatial developments, result in rich sensory engagement. He has had a large influence on subsequent generations as one of the most important post-minimalist artists. Without a specific reference point, his investigations of line, volume, color, texture, shape, and form are imbued with a sense of spirituality and informed by a deep intellectual curiosity. Language, spatial relationship, and scale are also central concerns for the artist, who maintains an acute awareness for the viewer’s aesthetic experience. (TOMIO KOYAMA GALLERY,Tokyo)
