Anne Truitt: Perception and Reflection

Text by Kristen Hileman, James Meyer.

Anne Truitt (1921-2004) is a heroine of American Minimalism, an increasingly admired artist whose journals (Daybook, Prospect, Turn) have a longstanding and devoted readership, but whose art has not previously been the subject of a substantial monograph. Perception and Reflection remedies this historical oversight superbly and decisively. The evolution of Truitt's sensibility is at once a classic Minimalist story and the tale of a truly independent spirit: following an encounter with the black paintings of Ad Reinhardt at the Guggenheim in 1961, she abandoned her earlier sculptural style and began to make stark, columnar works inscribed with bands of sometimes bright and sometimes quiet color. Truitt's account of this transition betrays her rare clarity and sensitivity: "I thought to myself, 'If I make a sculpture, it will just stand up straight and the seasons will go around it and the light will go around it and it will record time.'"
