Life is the meaning of life-Richard Tuttle

I love Richard Tuttle. I have only had the opportunity to hear him speak twice. Once at the Whitney Museum of Art and again last night at the Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto in conversation with Michelle Jacques, Associate Curator, Contemporary Art, and Georgiana Uhlyarik, Assistant Curator, Canadian Art. He spoke on Agnes Martin, his long time friend.

quotes from last night:

"Agnes Martin was a far out abstract artist."
"We are workers in the field of art"

"What is the meaning of life? Life is the meaning of life."
