Chihuly Workshop announces the release of its newest print, Silver Lining.
Beginning with a singular color palette, Chihuly’s series known as Chandeliers developed into a broader use of various forms, color, and light. These handblown glass sculptures are on view in public and private institutions including Benaroya Hall, home of the Seattle Symphony, and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
Highlighting Chihuly’s architectural sensibilities, Silver Lining explores scale and thoughtful use of form, combined with a mastery of color variation. This Chandelier drawing delicately transitions in color, gradually shifting from lapis to a metallic silver blue on a warm slate background. Copper acrylic has been applied to further delineate this iconic form. Adding to the composition are the artists’ signature “dots,” using an interference paint that changes color in various levels of light. The result is a translation of his brilliant series into a six-color serigraph with handwork. Silver Lining is signed by the artist in custom acrylic paint.
