About this Item

Signed Very nice hardback and jacket. Slight wear. Appears to be signed by the artist in a manner that I have not seen before and I have seen several Chihuly signatures. Inside the front board and extending onto the ffep is a series of circles descending in size from larger to smaller. Scribbles are inside the circle and the signature is more abbreviated than normal but is large and bold. Dated 6-26-94. There is a long father's day gift inscription on the ffep. Son had a renowned glass gallery in Columbus. Text is clean, unmarked. (Shelf location: Z2) All items carefully packed to avoid damage from moisture and rough handling. Tracking included.

About this title


"The first image that comes to mind when we attempt to describe Dale Chihuly's work and his trajectory through life is one of fluid movement with elusively inflected highlights. His life, largely spent on the road, is dictated by his prime obsessions, the making of glass and the conditions of exhibiting it. In recent years he has come to the conclusion that his task does not end when the glass has been blown and allowed to cool. Photographing the work and designing simple, effective installations are necessary stages in communicating with his audience. "The delightful thing about much new art of quality is its mischievous ability to break the rules. Chihuly successfully resists being trapped in many of the pigeonholes that make for neat categories, but leach art of its complexity. First, he confidently bestrides the distinction between craft and art. And second, he has never felt the need to choose between abstraction and representation - between the natural and the invented which has proven the great bugaboo in art all these years.
