After a serendipitous meeting with a friend who is working at the Halcyon Gallery, she took me to see their Chihuly show on New Bond Street.
I haven't seen so much of his work since the exhibition at Kew, about 7 years ago. I am happy to see a lot of similar pieces in this show, and also, some of his fantastic paintings! Really loved them, they were so vibrant. I kind of prefer them to some of the work. (Am I allowed to say that??)
He can't blow glass himself, due to a road accident, so he paints what he wants his technicians to create for him. Such an interesting process, and I can imagine, helps produce quite a lot of work.
It's only on until the 21st of April! Go now!
