Glassbox Barbershop opened in the spring of 2016, reviving a traditional role of barbershops as place of public discourse. Located at the corner of Harbord Street and Montrose Avenue, this neighbourhood barber also serves as a rotating space for local artists. With an expressive street presence, the light-filled interior creates an instant affinity between customer, personnel, and the local community.
‘Through a glass, darkly’ is a joint exhibition featuring new work by Jake Whillans and Maxime Stein. Integrated throughout the venue, the work in this series considers the nature of reflection through both visual and functional art.
Jake Whillans is a designer/maker of furniture and fine objects. His studio provides both speculative and privately commissioned work that is quietly expressive, progressively timeless, and delicately built with a sincere devotion to craftsmanship.
Maxime Stein is a Toronto-based multidisciplinary artist. Her practice includes painting, drawing, photography, film, and design. She communicates deeply and intuitively through the language of art and visual storytelling. Her passion for the arts, cinema, and technology has led to a career in the film industry working as a matte painter, painting photo real environments in various productions.
