My favorite glass piece from the Chihuly exhibit at the VMFA
Chihuly - boat with glass spheres
Chihuly - boat with flora forms
My reactions to this exhibit interest me greatly because they were so strong and defined and rather surprised me. I loved the boats, and especially the use of reflection in displaying the boats. But I was struck that I reacted so strongly to the spheres, I loved Chihuly's spheres especially as displayed in the boats. I appreciate and enjoy the botanical forms, but I love the spheres. This particularly interested me because I think I am more likely to draw/paint or otherwise represent floral forms than spheres. But I love the spheres.
