Light through a narrow flame of red glass, tapered at either end, casts a red glow in this provocative wall sculpture by John Paul Robinson. A band of metal at its centre bends the flame out from the wall where it seems to expand into greater physical space. Single Red is secured to the wall by an integrated pin. Hardware is included with this work. 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.
