by: Dale Chihuly

Three-color intaglio/lithograph with handwork

Purple Polka marks the fortieth anniversary of Chihuly’s Basket series and his pursuit of organic forms shaped by fire, gravity, and centrifugal force.

Metallic silver lithography ink is layered over the mottled intaglio background highlighting the artist’s energetic approach to work on paper. Added acrylic handwork further delineates each of the four blue Baskets with repeated white pearl zigzags, and iridescent purple on their upper edge known as the ‘lip wrap.’ Signed by Dale Chihuly in custom paint, Purple Polka demonstrates the artists’ evolving dialogue with his work in glass and its translation on to paper.
