Abby McGuane was recently featured in the Toronto Star.


“Sun spills in from the south and east of Abby McGuane’s studio on Sterling Rd. Light suits McGuane, whose work asks questions about perception and reality, with its uneasy combinations of materials, images and form.

Sleek objects culled from plaster or mortar are fitted with plates of glass, deflecting and distracting your gaze from the object to the space it occupies. Obscure images pressed between glass challenge you to make sense of what you can see, and what you can’t.
The luminous quality of the studio has done much to guide the work, but McGuane can stand on her own two feet, which is important: By March 1, she’ll be gone, in search of cheaper space as Sterling rents leap ever upward. Glass Wall, McGuane’s solo show at Cooper Cole Gallery, 1134 Dupont St., continues to Feb. 20.”
