Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This large, beautifully produced volume is a companion to the acclaimed Chihuly, Volume 1 originally published in 1997, which covered the first 30 years of the artistandrsquo;s career. Here, Donald Kuspit surveys the work of Dale Chihuly from 1997 to the present, a pivotal time in the artistandrsquo;s career. Long established as one of the most significant artists to ever work in glass, Chihuly began at this point to increase the scale of his work, mounting large museum exhibitions. He brought his work outdoors, building monumental installations in historic cities and at 12 preeminent gardens in Europe and America. Chihuly has also focused on architectural commissions from all over the world, culminating with his designing an exhibition space for his work that includes a glasshouse and garden in Seattle. For all the many fans of Chihulyandrsquo;s astonishing work, this book is the most sumptuous yet published.

Book News Annotation:

New edition of a full-scale study of the work and career of the world- renowned glass artist. In his introductory essay, Kuspit (winner of the Frank Jewett Mather Award for distinction in art criticism) explores the relationship of medium to artistry and craftsmanship, as well as the dynamics of the creative process. Dramatic full-page colorplates offer a visual outline of Chihuly's lifelong fascination with glass and his use of it to produce a wide range of visual and emotional effects, as well as a documentation of the general public's acceptance of his work. A chronology of the artist's life is illustrated with b&w photographs.
