Juxtaposition Raised to an Art Form

Whilst I was admiring the new Henry Moore sculpture in Kew Gardens I was reminded that a while ago - in 2005 I guess it was - that another great artist had an exhibition here: Dale Chihuly.  We weren't living in London at the time so I missed it, but I did get to encounter one of his chandeliers rather recently at the Victoria & Albert museum in South Kens.  Now I have to admit that I'm not a huge fan of Chihuly's work, but what I do appreciate is the juxtaposition of this bright, brash sculpture set within the classical architecture and gravitas of the V&A atrium.  And, of course, I had a little wander around some of my favourite galleries with my Canon.
