In 1961, Truitt made the first of the totem-like painted wood sculptures that would occupy her for the rest of her life. Truitt believed that life experiences were “the ground out of which art grows.” Sculptures could be triggered by colors she associated with friends or nature or memories of her childhood. She infused her art with these experiences through a labor intensive process—applying many layers of paint by hand to each piece and sanding the surfaces to a fine finish—and the bands of rich color that cover her sculptures, liberated from the traditional two-dimensional plane of painting, prompt viewers to make their own associations with her work. Although critics have attempted to group Truitt with the Minimalist sculptors or the Color Field painters, her marriage of painting and sculpture resulted in an oeuvre that eludes simple categorization.
