Get thee to CHIHULY

Last month I was in Montreal for a single day which I spent (due to heavy rain) indoors at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (MMFA). While it may have been gloomy outdoors, inside it felt like a magical Garden of Paradise thanks to the ethereal, other-worldly glass sculpture of American artist Dale Chihuly.

An acknowledged master of site-specific installation, Chihuly created a unique exhibit consisting of eight immersive environments, four of them designed specifically for the Museum. This exhibit inspired me to take MANY photos and his use of bold colours and organic forms have even made an impact on my latest drawings.

The Canadian exclusive exhibit CHIHULY: Utterly Breathtaking is on now at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts until October 20, 2013. If you can, go see it!
