About Duality RElegantly curved deep red glass pieces in twos are suspended on fine black steel cables in this dramatic new wall sculpture by Canadian artist John Paul Robinson. His glass work is inspired by nature’s elements—earth, wind, fire and water. The colour of this piece references ‘fire’…. the mesmerizing glow of flames. For Robinson, ‘Duality” is symbolic of an iconic physics experiment that explored the dual nature of light. Light exhibits both particle and wave-like behaviour.
“It’s important to me that my work be about something. So, I spend a lot of time reading, writing and basically researching ideas (often science-based) and issues that inform my work.” John Paul Robinson
He was educated at the Georgian College of Arts and Technology and the Ontario College of Art where he later taught for several 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 throughout North America. Robinson is represented exclusively by Oeno Gallery.
