Please join artists Martha Tuttle and Byron Kim for a virtual conversation on May 12 at 6 PM EST. This program is part of the Art and Nature series, which was launched on the occasion of Storm King’s 60th Anniversary. It is now a monthly virtual program in which artists and special guests come together to discuss the power of art in nature.
Martha Tuttle was born in Santa Fe, New Mexico in 1989. She received her BA from Bard College in 2011 and her MFA from The Yale School of Art in 2015. She has held residencies at the Rauschenberg Foundation in Captiva, FL, the Sharpe-Walentas Studio Program in Brooklyn, NY and A-Z West in Joshua Tree, CA, and the UCross Foundation in Clearmont, WY, and fellowships from the Josef Albers Foundation, and the Beinecke Rare Books and Manuscripts library. Her work has been shown widely in the US and Europe and has been written about in The New York Times, Artforum, Art in America, and The Brooklyn Rail. Her work is in the collections of The Museum of Modern Art, New York and the University of San Diego, California. Tuttle is represented by Tilton Gallery in New York and by Rhona Hoffman Gallery in Chicago.
Byron Kim is best known for his painting Synecdoche, which was included in the 1993 Whitney Biennial. Composed of a grid of hundreds of panels depicting human skin color, the work is both an abstract painting and a group portrait. His ongoing series of Sunday Paintings, in which he paints the sky every week along with a handwritten journal entry, combines the cosmological and the quotidian. Kim received a B.A. in English at Yale University in 1983 and attended the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in 1986.
