[Translate to English:] Wie eine filigrane,
Tuttle’s work was created in 1986, the result of the artist’s year-long exploration of the magnificent hall of mirrors in the Neue Galerie in Graz, Austria. The artworks that Tuttle developed for the specific spatial situation in Graz reflect his previous exploration of the significance of colour in the Baroque period and its interplay with light and space. The connection to light and splendorous Baroque architecture—much like that of the Zwinger—is thus inscribed in this work. In its original situation as well, the abstract sculpture, by being placed in a niche, was framed by architecture. Thus, more than a dialogue, a “trialogue” arises in the Porzellansammlung between the contemporary Western sculpture, the historical Asian exhibits and the Baroque architecture.
