two-color intaglio/lithograph with acrylic handwork
Two Crowns expresses Chihuly’s unmistakable drawing style and his relationship with form, color, and scale.
A dark purple lithography ink over an aquatic green intaglio background delineates two forms the artist refers to as Ikebana. Varied in scale, the Ikebana are further defined by added acrylic handwork which includes a turquoise outline with gold lines repeated throughout each base. A metallic copper and bright yellow crown the tops, highlighting Chihuly’s spontaneous approach.
