“I want people to be overwhelmed with light and color in some way that they’ve never experienced,” Dale Chihuly has explained. The American sculptor developed a new way of working with glass, utilizing gravity to let molten glass organically find its shape. Asymmetry and irregularity are defining characteristics of his work. In the upcoming sale presented by Bonhams, one of Dale Chihuly’s glass sculptures will be featured. Three yellow, red, and orange pieces connect to form a single wall installation.
From Dale Chihuly to Francois Thevenin, the Modern Design Art auction offers pieces from many contemporary artists. Thevenin’s Crypto 10 Armchair is particularly highlighted in this sale. Produced in 1985, the armchair is made of patinated bronze. Fine art pieces are also available, including an acrylic painting by Dan Christensen. The artist used a range of Modernist sources to produce colorful compositions. View each of these lots and register to bid online on the Invaluable website.
