Published in conjunction with the July 2002 exhibition at The Museum of Glass in Tacoma, Washington, this volume displays the most recent large glass sculptures of Libensk'y and Brychtov'a, whose artistic interests involve changes in surface treatment, the dynamics of intersecting planes, and the presence of voids. Kehlmann (artist, critic, and writer) discusses their aesthetic in terms of the Czech intellectual and artistic climate in which it formed, with particular attention to the influence of Czech cubism. A conversation with the artists reveals further details about their creative process, and an interview of art historian Jiri Setlfk presents his perspective on their work. Illustrated with 31 color and b&w plates, and several line drawings. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
