Chihuly’s Chandeliers developed from a longtime interest in architecture and his desire to create site-specific installations. This innovative series was fully realized during the Chihuly Over Venice project in 1996. Beginning with a focused color palette the Chandeliers developed further with Chihuly’s thoughtful use of various forms, color and light. These dramatic sculptures have since been exhibited at opera houses and grand halls of museums worldwide.
The release of Venice Passage by Dale Chihuly marks the twentieth anniversary of the acclaimed Venice project. Layered over a lime-yellow intaglio background is a delicate balance of crimson lithography ink with red acrylic handwork defining the Chandelier. Adding to the print’s refined composition are gold-red metallic dots in acrylic paint. The result exemplifies the artist’s translation of the inspired series onto a work on paper. Venice Passage is a two-color intaglio/lithograph with handwork signed by Chihuly.
