Chihuly

Have you heard of Dale Chihuly?

If you haven't you probably would still recognize his blown glass work on display all over the world. Back to when I lived in London, I had the opportunity to visit a Dale Chihuly exhibit at the Halcyon Gallery and loved seeing all the individual pieces on display.

The Toronto exhibit, on now until January 2nd 2017, is nothing like the display in London. At the beginning of the exhibition is a quote from Chihuly ''I want people to be overwhelmed with light and colour in a way that they've never experienced.'' And he does just that.

This large scale, all encompassing, display creates a real feeling of theme and emotion. The glass sparkles under the special lighting and I could have spent hours looking at each piece. The scale of displays dwarfs the viewer, demanding reverence and attention with its presence.
