Anne Truitt: '62–'63


Matthew Marks Gallery

1062 North Orange Grove, Los Angeles, CA

April 18 – July 2, 2015


This exhibition includes three sculptures and two paintings on paper from 1962 and 1963 — seminal years for Anne Truitt. The artist’s first one-person exhibition opened in New York in February 1963, and the five objects featured here show a vision as original and advanced as that of any of her contemporaries. Each sculpture began with a wooden form constructed by a cabinetmaker to the artist’s specifications. Truitt then finished the artwork through a labor-intensive process involving many layers of paint, each mixed and applied by hand. The three sculptures exhibited here employ a palette of whites and subtly hued blacks.
