Past exhibitions have seen the artist explore color and form. Indeed, the artist’s monochromatic leaps of color blown into shapes of awesome complexity and scale stand as some of the most impressive works created by an American glassblower. The inclusion of a Trio from 2006 in this exhibition is a reminder of just how sophisticated Dante’s vision can be. The large Pitcher is a tour-de-force.
For this exhibition Dante creates works of significant scale seemingly without effort. In several cases color and pattern are explored as many as three times in variously sized forms. Exhibited together these groupings take on a conceptual quality as the optical brilliance of all that pattern plays with and against itself.
We are thrilled to once again present the work of one of the most significant artists working with glass today to document the exhibition with this catalogue.
