These three volumes, housed in a stunning slipcase, bring together many of renowned glass artist Dale Chihuly’s most impressive works on paper. Organized across medium—graphite, charcoal, and acrylic—Chihuly on Paper is the single most comprehensive book covering what the artist considers to be the most direct representation of the energy behind his artistic process. Chihuly (b. 1941) describes this energy as “spontaneous, fast, immediate,” and the gorgeous reproductions here convey this immediacy as never before. The excitement of Chihuly’s work on paper is in its unpredictability and organic expressiveness—the same elements that distinguish the artist’s signature work in glass. An essay by Nathan Kernan explores these compelling works of art.
