Maroon Blue Egg
Richard Tuttle ( American, 1941 )
Richard Tuttle explores the use of the handmade in this assemblage of wild colors and eccentric materials. "Maroon Blue Egg" refers to the color and general shape of the work but is not meant to guide its reading or interpretation. Tuttle created this hybrid of patchwork forms and colors out of mass-produced materials reminiscent of what might be found in the bottom of a shop drawer, making a work that challenges our ideas of traditional sculpture.
