Anne Truitt: Sound


Matthew Marks Gallery

523 West 24th Street, New York, NY

November 12 – December 19, 2020

On view by appointment only 


This exhibition includes fourteen works on paper and two sculptures, all being shown for the first time. Truitt completed the fourteen paintings on paper that comprise the “Sound” series in 2003, a year before her death at age eighty-two. For each work, she took a sheet of paper approximately twenty inches square and covered it edge to edge with paint. While making the series Truitt described the impression that her sense of shape, structure, and proportion had departed her. “What is left is ‘sound,’ some kind of energy without name,” she wrote. The works on paper are accompanied by the sculptures Hover and Pond Sound, both from 1999.
