This exquisite glass wall sculpture extends almost 60 inches across. It was featured in Robinson's solo exhibition at the Canadian Clay and Glass Gallery. It evokes a remarkable sense of movement, both through the imagery of the feathers flying in a circular motion, but also through the energy of the light and shadows that are reflected on the wall. Award-winning glass artist and instructor John Paul Robinson was educated at the Georgian College of Arts and Technology in Barrie, Ontario, and the Ontario College of Art, where he subsequently taught for a number of years. His work has been exhibited in solo shows throughout Canada and the United States, in cities such as Montreal, Toronto and Chicago. Robinson’s works are held in the collections of The Museum of Civilization in Ottawa, Ontario, the Museum of American Glass in Millville, New Jersey and the Musée des Beaux-arts de Montréal, Québec. Glass artist John Paul Robinson, explores the mythic potential of science. He explains, “This is the idea that scientific discovery is changing our mythology by changing our understanding of the world and our place in it.” Backed with a firm understanding of the science he references, his sculptures poetically interpret such theoretical phenomena as wave particles, string mathematics and black holes. This particular sculpture speaks to the experience we all share of flying through space at a high speed, simply by virtue of being on this planet. The pins are inserted directly into drywall. Alternatively, the artist will mount them permanently on a circular background. Pricing includes white glove delivery and installation by the artist, anywhere in the world. Robinson has been invited to many institutions, galleries and events to speak about his ideas on art, science and myth. This is a unique opportunity for a private and personal discussion with the artist. (He is charming!) . Alternatively, we will provide detailed installation instructions if you prefer.
