Fluid colours and brilliant transparency highlight the sculptural forms of glass artist Paull Rodrigue.
Paull's work is an inter-play of very simple forms. His colours and rhythmic bubbles flow easily into each other, playing off the optic quality of the thick glass. Paull’s works are created using an Italian technique called “Incalmo” where one piece of glass is welded to another, producing ribbons of light.
Paull Rodrigue is a graduate of Sheridan College Institute’s Glass Program. He has been featured in a solo exhibition at the Brampton Art Centre, as well as the Toronto Outdoor Art Show, and the One of A Kind Show. He has already made a significant mark in the Canadian contemporary art glass community, with a technical proficiency that will surely bring him great success in years to come.
“Through multiple techniques and colour applications, I indulge in the presence of hot glass. In this creative process of hot glass, I connect with the conscious part of my personality and awaken. The glass presents a challenge that I respond to in an intuitive and spontaneous manner. The seductive qualities continue to entice me and I look forward to the ‘court and spark’ and the dance that ensues. This continuous dance ends with the removal of the puntil works which are technical, layered in colour, and eloquent in linear aesthetics. From this point, I am satisfied with the knowledge and the inspirational efforts that are put into making my work.”
