Today my homage is to Anne Truitt, with thanks to the Matthew Marks Gallery in Chelsea (NYC), for this beautiful installation in their elegant gallery in 2010. I had great pleasure in absorbing this work then, and in photographing it. Here is an apt observation from a piece by Charlie Finch in Artnet:  

"There are two interpretive elements to Truitt's sculpture, a forbidding armor which blocks out the viewer at first glance, and then a slowly revealed intimacy which invites further discovery."

"Artists have no choice but to express their lives. They have only, and that not always, a choice of process. This process does not change the essential content of their work in art, which can only be their life." ~ Anne Truitt
