ICA Speaks: Richard Tuttle
Artist Richard Tuttle, who since the mid-1960s has created an extraordinarily varied body of work that eludes historical or stylistic categorization, discusses his work, and installs a historic work from his “Blue/Red” series at ICA Speaks in the Miami Design District’s Palm Court.
Richard Tuttle (b. 1941, Rahway, New Jersey) is one of the most significant artists working today. Tuttle’s work exists in the space between painting, sculpture, poetry, assemblage, and drawing. He draws beauty out of humble materials, reflecting the fragility of the world in his poetic works. 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.
