Brooke Alexander Gallery
Richard Tuttle

Since his first one-man show at Betty Parsons Gallery in 1965, Richard Tuttle has carved a unique niche in the contemporary art world. Tuttle's work focuses on process and on forms, often using the simplest of materials, and often at a small scale, to explore the nature of composition, balance, dimension, and space.

The work of Richard Tuttle takes on many forms. Throughout his career the artist has created sculptures, drawings, prints, installations, artist's books, and very often a hybrid of several of these forms. While retaining a minimalist sensibility, Richard Tuttle has made use of a wide range of materials, including metal wire, dyed canvas, plywood, galvanized metal, paper, styrofoam, bubblewrap, plastic, glass, feathers, cardboard, tin cans, lightbulbs, ceramic, and masking tape.

Brooke Alexander began collaborating with Richard Tuttle in 1973 when they published In Praise of Economic Determinism, one of Tuttle's earliest editioned prints, and a prime example of his "frameless" aesthetic. Brooke Alexander and Richard Tuttle have continued this collaboration over the years, most recently with Fluidity of Projection (2008).
