Richard Tuttle has worked in close collaboration with the Kunsthaus Zug as the “in-house artist” for almost twenty years. Through fragile, mostly small, subtle paintings as well as sculptural objects and three-dimensional installations, he continues to explore special features of the museum’s architecture or selected works from its collection. Tuttle poses questions about endurance and continuity, rhythm and repetition in the various cultures of contemporary global society.

TheStars Richard Tuttle

Published by Modern Art, London, 2020, 260 pages (colour ill.), 16.5 × 22.5 cm, English

Price: €44

Produced on the occasion of Richard Tuttle’s exhibition TheStars at Modern Art, London, 1 October – 21 November, 2020.

Bearing a clear resemblance to some of Tuttle’s early work from the 1970s, such as his iconic Rope Piece (1974), which came to typify his bold approach to scale, these new works are made predominantly from plywood, paint, paper and metal wire, each sits atop its own hand-made shelf, annotated by Tuttle with its particular title, and secured to the wall with a single nail. The publication documents the new work alongside a series of Tuttle’s corresponding poems.

Richard Tuttle

Published by Städtisches Museum Abteiberg, Mönchengladbach, 1985, 128 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 21 × 15 cm, English

Price: €15

Produced on the occasion of Richard Tuttle’s 1985 exhibition at the Städtisches Museum Abteiberg, Mönchengladbach. 22/9/85 – 24/11/85

Richard Tuttle’s work exists in the space between painting, sculpture, poetry, assemblage, and drawing. He draws beauty out of humble materials, reflecting the fragility of the world in his poetic works. Without a specific reference point, his investigations of line, volume, color, texture, shape, and form are imbued with a sense of spirituality and informed by a deep intellectual curiosity. Language, spatial relationship, and scale are also central concerns for the artist, who maintains an acute awareness for the viewer’s aesthetic experience.
