These three volumes, housed in a stunning slipcase, bring together many of Chihuly’s most impressive Works on Paper. It is organized by medium—graphite, charcoal, and acrylic—and is the single most comprehensive book covering what the artist considers to be the most direct representation of the energy behind his artistic process.
Chihuly describes this energy as “spontaneous, fast, immediate,” and the gorgeous reproductions here convey this immediacy as never before. An essay by Nathan Kernan explores these compelling works of art.
Dale Chihuly is an American glass sculptor and entrepreneur. His works are considered unique to the field of blown glass, "moving it into the realm of large-scale sculpture" The technical difficulties of working with glass forms are considerable, yet Chihuly uses it as the primary medium for installations and environmental artwork. His work is included in more than 200 museum collections worldwide. He has been the recipient of many awards, including eleven honorary doctorates and two fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts.
