The inspiration of artist Richard Tuttle is realized in his philosophy: “Once order has been found, everything can be changed around.” In one’s daily search for order ~ there is chaos, uncertainty, confusion. Alas, order achieved. Exhale; mix it up. It is never the same again.
The piece seen here is entitled, “Letters”. Completed by Tuttle in 1966, early in his career, is made from relief soldered tin and is valued at over $1.4 million. If the letters were shuffled, would the value of this piece change?
