Anne Truitt


I love the repetition of the simple column shape, the subtle interaction between painted surface and segmented units. Both dealing with limits, units, movement. Happy to hear that she will be having a retrospective later this year at the Hirshhorn .

"I think of her work as being a bit like the more colorful sculptural sister of Agnes Martin.":

hi, nice to see her mentioned on your site, she was a teacher of mine and the press she's getting now is well deserved.
