20 Jan 2018 – 22 Apr 2018
Halcyon Gallery presents Chihuly NOW, the latest solo gallery exhibition by American artist Dale Chihuly. Chihuly NOW, which explores the artist’s current art-making process, is on view 20 January through 22 April.
Chihuly NOW reveals the continuing evolution of a master artist known for over 50 years of innovative experiments with light, space and form. The body of work curated for the gallery exhibition demonstrates the artist’s desire to push boundaries when developing new work.
“Chihuly NOW celebrates Chihuly’s tenacious creativity and shows how essential experimentation is to his art-making process,” said Paul Green, President at Halcyon Gallery. “This show is the manifestation of how Chihuly continues to stretch the limits of his chosen media, and we are thrilled to share this immersive experience with art enthusiasts.”
Chihuly creates unexpected experiences in unlikely places, and he is renowned for his ambitious architectural installations in historic cities, museums and gardens around the world. He strives to create visceral experiences that ignite the imagination of atypical art audiences and utilizes a variety of media including glass, paint, charcoal, graphite, neon, ice, and Polyvitro, to fulfil his vision.
The selection of works featured in the gallery exhibition are comprised mainly of new works by Chihuly—many of which demonstrate new techniques and applications used by the artist. Highlights include Rotolo, heavy coils of glass wrapped around a core vessel which the artist premiered in 2013; a study of Chihuly’s penchant for asymmetry demonstrated through dramatic compositions of Persians; the artist’s celebrated Baskets; and Light Drawings, two-dimensional paintings on acrylic which showcase the artist’s expressive hand and his interest in the transmission of light through transparent media. ~ Halcyon Gallery

I can imagine. When in Paris, I divide my time between walking in the streets (a museum of sorts) and galleries or museums. (Plus old friends and families) (You must be happy to see your brother)
