Painting and drawing have always been important vehicles for Chihuly’s creative expression, sometimes relating directly to his works in glass, but more often standing apart as independent practice. His paintings are known for their rhythm, gestural energy, color sensibility, and the evident spontaneity of their creation. 

“You can more directly sense my energy in my drawings than any other way perhaps. And from the very beginning, the drawings were done, as my glass is done, very quickly, very fast.” 

 —Dale Chihuly
