French artist Claude Rutault (born 1941) blurs the boundaries of painting and sculpture, and/or painting and architecture.

Since 1973, Claude Rutault  uses a simple method to create new artworks. Using the principle of “definition/method”, the artist’s work consists of monochrome painted canvases which are hung on a wall that is painted the exact same colour as the canvases. Although simple, Rutault has garnered much recognition for his unique method, which extends the boundaries of art, making the entire wall part of the featured effect. In fact, Rutault invented almost 300 different ways to paint his walls and canvases the same colour, each of them differing based on the shape and size of the canvases, their structural placement along the wall, and of course, the overall colour used.
