Paper plate, plaster

Edition of 5
Richard Tuttle’s subtle and poetic works playfully affect our perception of form, space, volume and line. In Ground, he transforms humble materials – a paper plate and plaster – into a curious object that through a gesture of self-representation takes on a strange beauty. Richard Tuttle exhibited in 1996.
