Richard Tuttle

These paintings by Richard Tuttle remind me of envelopes. Painted onto raw ply the wood grain becomes part of the composition. Richard Tuttle worked with small humble materials.
"My materials are small, insignificant non entities compared to the power of nature, for example, to me the drama of crummy materials . . . you know on a stormy sea the small chip is going to survive, where the titanic sinks." Richard Tuttle
