item2Henry Jabbour

Congratulations to Henry on his 2 recent awards, The Davison Award for Oil Painting and The Winsor and Newton Painting Award at the Royal Society of British Artists.

Times Critic Giles Sutherland said of Henry’s work in a Times review “Jabbour’s work shows that in the right hands painting is not a static medium, but something alive and vibrant, with something new to say despite contemporary art’s pursuit of the novel and the technological.”

Henry says of his work, "My current body of work focuses on the human figure. I am interested in the emotive qualities of body gesture, colour and mark making.

My work is a quest to subvert the specific in search for the universal. Each piece is a search beyond mere appearance, attempting to connect the vulnerability, fragility and impermanence of the individual with a sense of common and shared humanity. My work-making process embraces both the familiar and the unexpected, and combines observation, memory and intuition. My aim is that each piece develops a visual presence that is independent of me, or my original artistic intentions, so that the viewer can continue the search that I have initiated.

I work primarily in oils but also make unique works on paper using monotype and other print media."
