Richard Tuttle interviewed during the installation of The Third Mind: American Artists Contemplate Asia, 1860–1989. Drawing on Asian aesthetics of Minimalism and the philosophies of Zen Buddhism, artist Richard Tuttle strives for the “perfect balance between imminence and transcendence" in his art. Of his white octagons, he says, “The humbleness of these is actually balanced by the anything-but-humble ambition to create a new form.”
