Art Post No.4/By Emily

Emily is back with some more art to share….

I first became aware of Richard Tuttle’s work through a college roommate. She’d worked for an edition gallery in New York one summer, and spent nearly all of her summer earnings on one of his pieces. Tuttle’s works are incredibly reductive, minimal; they are generously about form, colors and the materials that he uses. He is one of the foremost post-minimal artists of our time, and has had exhibitions at the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, among numerous additional museums both in the US and abroad.
