Jacob Robert Whibley is an artist focusing on the information and experiences embedded within object. He intuitively blends histories, architectures and infrastructures into formal compositions. Embracing notions of multiplicity and contrasting it with singular gestures and found objects, his work explores the negotiation of artifacts within our collective sense of temporality, progress, labour, and accumulation.
A graduate of the Ontario College of Art and Design and a former member (2005-2011) of Toronto collective Team Macho, Jacob Robert Whibley has exhibited both in Canada and internationally. His work is in the collections of RBC, BMO and the Art Gallery of Ontario. He is represented by Zalucky Contemporary and was an Open Studio Visiting Artist in 2016.
