About Martha Tuttle

From The Magazine

  • Martha Tuttle's works capture the ephemeral nuances of time, spirit and nature in earthbound hanging paintings. In this work the artist engages pigments and colors found in natural elements. Subtle variations in color and shadow result from the folding, rubbing, and dyeing of paper. Raw wool is hand-spun and woven, then beaten with a mallet for hours and dyed repeatedly to achieve the right depth of color. While soft and light absorbing, the surfaces also possess an inner luminescence. Hanging freely, attached only at the top, the layers imply movement; they enter our dimension. These layers create a lightness and interaction very different from that achieved by the layering of paint on a flat surface. The effect, a painting that is also a physical, varied, and breathing object, draws the viewer in, while the fragmentation preserves space for imagination.
