Telling documentary on a great artist team
on June 19, 2013
Chihuly would deserve a more detailed review.
I just want to make a quick note about how I was captivated by this documentary about the Chihuly team of craftsmen and craftswomen.
The documentary shows eloquently the skills and strength required from the glass-blowing craftsmen and craftswomen of the Chihuly team to create their masterpieces.
As reported in an other review, Chihuly's health and strength has been impaired by 2 major accidents long ago. We can see, from the documentary, that it must not be easy for the master to need delegating the physical work of the craft to his team mates most of the time.
I also got the "HD Moods: Chihuly in Nature" BluRay disc. In this BR disk we see the masterworks that the individual pieces created in the documentary lead to. I saw this BR disc before the documentary. I did not know this artist before and was mesmerized by the works showed in the BR disc presentation.
I find Chihuly to be a great artist, so close to nature, who has a magical touch in handling the mystical capacity of glass to handle light.
I don't understand why Chihuly has a so brief note in Wikipedia. Maybe that's because he is not "postmodern" or "post postmodern" enough ...
Presently, there is a big exhibition of Chihuly in the Montreal Art Museum. I can't wait to go and see it. Unfortunately, I missed the lecture that the master made at the Museum 2 weeks ago, but I won't miss the exhibition.
(I bought the 2 BR disks on Amazon.ca at a very reasonable price)
