Description - Chihuly by Suzanne Rus
The American artist Dale Chihuly has been making enchanting, spectacular and expressive creations from glass for over fifty years. His style can be recognised by the use of organic shapes, vibrant colours, and from the dizzying spatial effects of the installed works. Clearly defined periods can be distinguished in his career, reflecting his unceasing fascination for the fundamental nature of glass. The designs that predominate in his oeuvre are not only impressive but also playful, not only visually attractive but also technically challenging. This catalogue for a show of 16 indoor and outdoor installations accompanies Chihuly's largest museum show to date in continental Europe and contains a complete overview of all the highlights of Chihuly's oeuvre. In addition to background information, innovative essays and a personal interview with Chihuly, this book includes a vast wealth of images that illuminate the trajectory of his career.
