  • Catalogue Essay

    "Beginning in the mid-1960s, Tuttle began to create eccentrically-shaped painted wood reliefs, followed by ideograms made of galvanized tin, and unstretched, shaped canvases dyed in offbeat colors that fall squarely within the Postminimalist tradition. As his work evolved, it increasingly pursued a radical reduction of composition elements. By the beginning of the 1980s, Tuttle's objects take on a profusion of materials, shapes, colours, volumes, and scales. His works in the 1990s marked a return to smaller-sized work that nevertheless commands attention, followed by discrete bodies of low-relief wallbound pieces that integrate painting, sculpture, and drawing, challenging concepts of line, surface, color, space, and the frame."
