Dale Chihuly: Beyond the Object

This year, I’ve decided that I need to embrace the inner culture vulture in me that has been prevented from fully emerging because of this funny thing called life and establishing a career path. I’ll also admit that despite being a ‘Londoner’ I pretty much am a tourist in my own city of birth. Sad times. I popped along with a friend to the Halcyon Gallery situated on New Bond Street to catch Dale Chihuly’s new exhibition called ‘Beyond the Object.’ After spotting it on Timeout London, the sheer beauty of glass sculptures and eye-popping colours had me intrigued. I find most art exhibitions lack colour and aren’t visually stimulating, and so when this exhibition caught my eye, I needed to check it out.

Dale Chihuly is an American glass sculptor and he is known for blowing glass to make large-scale sculptures. I found his work to be breathtakingly beautiful and let’s just say it was really good to see something that wasn’t black and white – because who wants to see that in Spring?

He wasn’t part of the exhibition. He is Dale Chihuly.

If you’re around grabbing a spot of lunch, this is a great addition to your day. On till the 5th April 2014.
