Two Crowns

Two Crowns expresses Chihuly’s unmistakable drawing style and his relationship with form, color, and scale. A dark purple lithography ink over an aquatic green intaglio background delineates two forms the artist refers to as Ikebana. Varied in scale, these Ikebana are further defined by added acrylic handwork which includes a turquoise outline with gold lines repeated throughout each base. A metallic copper and bright yellow color crown the tops, ultimately revealing Chihuly’s spontaneous approach to his work on paper. Two Crowns is a two-color intaglio/lithograph with handwork, signed in paint and numbered in pencil.
