Tuttle and Texture

We have been looking at tools, machines and parts of old cars. We made some drawings and looked at the variety of shapes and textures.

This week we began to imagine other ways of creating texture. We looked at Richard Tuttle’s work, who has recently had an exhibition at Whitechapel Gallery and Tate Modern.

We looked at the variety of materials used in his work. What can you see here?


We then experimented with printing using different materials to see what marks we could make. Wire, bubble wrap, sandpaper, fabric, card, shoelaces, foam, sponge, velcro, foil…

We then looked again at the car parts and created a printing plate using the textures we liked.

We used circles of thick grey-board to experiment.DSC_0217 DSC_0219 DSC_0221

We laid out our design before sticking it down.DSC_0225 DSC_0226 DSC_0233 DSC_0234 DSC_0241 DSC_0242 DSC_0243 DSC_0244 DSC_0245 DSC_0246 DSC_0247 DSC_0248 DSC_0249

This is one of Richard Tuttle’s Works  - we were quite inspired by this, but want to turn it into some kind of machine of our own..watch this space.WG-g9-Richard-Tuttle-I-Don’t-Know-.-The-Weave-of-Textile-Language-installation-view-2014.-Photo-credit-Stephen-White-2-1170x655
