Frederic Tuten: On A Terrace In Tangier - Works on Cardboard

Edited by Karen Marta. Interview by Hans Ulrich Obrist. Text by Frederic Tuten.

Frederic Tuten: On A Terrace In Tangier - Works on Cardboard

Charming, riotous paintings from the celebrated, multitalented author of My Young Life and Tintin in the New World

Working on cardboard and canvas, the acclaimed New York–based novelist, short story writer and essayist Frederic Tuten (born 1936) creates dream-like landscapes in places as far-flung as Tangier and Tuscany. His works, which use recurrent motifs such as sombreros and inverted cups, play host to a parade of characters, objects and shapes that converge in fascinating, often mysterious compositions.
This book compiles a vibrant selection of Tuten’s recent paintings and drawings alongside short stories written by the artist to accompany each and every picture, in addition to an interview with Hans Ulrich Obrist. In Tuten’s world, rendered in ink, colored pencil, crayon, pastel and, more recently, oil paint, imagination reigns supreme.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

New York Magazine: Vulture

Jerry Saltz

Frederic Tuten overflows with visionary scenes right out of a fecund and ungovernable imagination. Done in an awkward, assured, cartoonish hand with undertones of Arshile Gorky’s teeming amorphic graphic fields, this is pigment, shape, and scene as abstract language.
