TateShots: Richard Tuttle

On display at Tate Modern, Richard Tuttle‘s artwork almost disappears before your eyes. It’s a large white octagonal shape, cut from paper and glued against the white gallery wall. It feels like the antithesis of painting.

Richard Tuttle came to prominence in the 1960s as part of a generation of Post-Minimalist artists, including Bruce Nauman and Eve Hesse, who questioned dominant trends of Minimalism by embracing an improvisational approach to art-making using everyday, often ephemeral materials.

TateShots met Tuttle at the Getty in Los Angeles, where he is currently artist in residence to hear about his philosophy of art.
