The Fifth Avenue Art Gallery is pleased to present the glass creations from Michael Robinson, last years 2012, 100% Pure Florida Juried Show winner. In Robinson's hands glass is not worked or manipulated but transformed into designs that suspend time. Captured in this exquisitely unforgiving medium is a portal into the mind's eye of this talented artist. Entry may take us to a distant windswept shore - or result in the quiet contemplation of a single perfect bloom - or plunge us into the depths of that remote region known as inner space.
Robinson states, “I have found glass to be an appropriate medium to express the forms found in nature – the fluid motion of wind and water and the shapes of the creatures that inhabit those realms –because glass echoes nature; it is enduring but fragile. Careless action can destroy a glass object (or a natural ecosystem) that would otherwise exist for eons. Here we have the underlying voice of glass”.
Michael will be giving a talk about his glass work on our Second Saturday event which this month is June 15th.
