Dale Chihuly: Beyond the Object

Extra

American artist Dale Chihuly has transformed London’s Halcyon Gallery with his flamboyant hand-blown glass sculptures.

The installation features paintings and glassworks that resemble sea creatures, plants, fungi and even whorled galaxies, including a selection of neon pieces never previously shown in the UK. Fluid creations undulate and twist in playful formations around the space.

Giant glass chandeliers – several of which are suspended over two floors – see glass blown out of the confines of small precious objects and into the realm of large-scale sculpture and environmental art.

Most impressive is the dramatically lit Persian Pergola ceiling – a glass canopy of vivid colour and light that visitors can walk beneath. Reminiscent of our Engineered colour palette for Spring/Summer 2015, the installation is an electric fusion of brilliant patterns and bold, bright colour in primary hues of red, yellow and blue. 

Dale Chihuly: Beyond the Object continues until April 6 2014.
