Homesick as a Nail 1998 From the portfolio Sequences One drypoint etching on Somerset white rag paper and one silkscreen, printed in five colors on acetate on both sides, hand-colored additions.

Tuttle´s work is composed of fragile beauty assembled and transformed from the experience of everyday life. Always experimenting, in these prints, Tuttle manipulated the process of silkscreen by using guided blasts of water directly on the screen to form the imagery of the mylar overlay. As with his work in general, Tuttle continues to investigate the perceptive and cognitive boundaries of the visual field.
