Three arcs of glowing amber glass are curated into elegant overlapping waves in this wall sculpture by Canadian artist John Paul Robinson. The design of this piece suspended from a single point is enhanced by golden shadows cast by light filtering through the glass. The artist's preoccupation with natural laws and our relationship with them is reflected in Gold Frequency which reminds us of the measured waves or frequency of coloured light.

Robinson was educated at the Georgian College of Arts and Technology and the Ontario College of Art, where he later taught for a number of years. Robinson is a Fellow of The Creative Glass Center of America, recipient of the Joan Chalmers Glass Award and has twice received the Best Glass Award at the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition. Robinson has had solo exhibitions in Montreal, Toronto, Palm Beach, Quebec City and Chicago. His works are in corporate, private and public collections including the Canadian Museum of History, the Canadian Clay and Glass Gallery in Waterloo, the Museum of American Glass, New Jersey, the Toronto Granite Club and the Musée des beaux-arts de Montréal.
