Ann Truitt’s paintings are as remarkable as her better known slender totemic sculptures. Minimalist’s only true studio artist, Truitt’s bold paintings are austere but sensuous. “I regard [my paintings] as inflections of sculpture”, Truitt once said. Instead of subtracting volume, her paintings create space when the eye scans the surface for interruptions that generate depth. Truitt had a keen sense of proportion and her tool was the hand-painted line, as sure-footed and razor sharp as a knife. She used color intuitively: bold but emotive her chromatic dualities play with memory and perception. Simplified in form and color, Truitt’s elegant paintings have quietly withstood art history’s pull towards a more muscular male minimalism. At Matthew Marks through October 27.
