MEDIA ADVISORY/PHOTO OPPORTUNITY: World-Renowned Artist Richard Tuttle Lectures at Kent StatePosted Mar. 18, 2010
Richard Tuttle is a world-renowned artist of inventive abstract works. As part of the Thomas Schroth Visiting Artist Series, Tuttle will give a lecture at Kent State University on March 18 at 7:30 p.m. in the Kent Student Center Kiva. The event is free and open to the public.
Throughout his career, Richard Tuttle has deliberately sought to create works that command attention through quiet means and humble or fragile materials. His use of line has been a signature which he has continually reinvented, always freeing it from imitation, making it real, and creating energy at the same time. Tuttle's use of line crosses media and space, blurring categorical distinction.
His work over the past four decades has intermingled drawing, painting, collage, book-making, design and sculpture. His primary impetus throughout has been to craft unique objects, using every day, often ephemeral materials.
Richard Tuttle's work can be found in nearly 50 major public collections worldwide. Since 1965, nearly three hundred solo exhibitions of Tuttle's work have been mounted.
Richard Tuttle is considered to be one of the most stimulating and influential artists of the day.
