ABOUT THE WORK
Just as generations before us pass down stories to shape community morals and educate younger generations, Wade Tullier’s practice embraces these verbal processes. Working with clay, repetitions develop into physical myths, adding layers to the dominant stories surrounding his work.
In our Owl figure with Fruit edition, Tullier has stacked his iconic owl figure with bright red fruit—joining discordant imagery into unity through form and color—exploring his personal harmony & dissonance with the natural world. By blending personal narratives into his ceramic sculptures, Tullier emphasizes the nonlinear structure of memory and how storytelling is essential.
Wade Tullier has a forthcoming 2022 solo exhibition at The Sculpture Center in Cleveland, Ohio. Previous solo and group exhibitions have been held at Primary Projects (Miami, FL); Jeffrey Deitch Gallery (New York, NY); Cranbrook Art Museum (Bloomfield Hills, MI); and ROYGBIV Gallery (Columbus, OH). Tullier currently lives and works in Detroit.
