Henry Jabbour is a painter and a printmaker. He lives and works in Cambridge and Edinburgh. He trained in the visual arts in Edinburgh and New York where he obtained a Master of Fine Art in Painting and Printmaking.
‘His subjects are people and their relationships, either to each other or to the artist. The images are tender and full of emotional maturity. Each is carefully considered and composed; they look outward to the world and inward to the artist’s humanity. They celebrate life and implicitly value its impermanence, conscious of their ability to endure beyond the lifetime of Jabbour and those that inhabit his works.’ Giles Sutherland – The Times (November 2019)
‘The Paintings are richly coloured but roughly brushed so that the figures, while vigorously present, also seem to be struggling to preserve their identity in the stream of time and space. These are existentialist pictures, reflecting the individual search for stable identity in the flux of experience. This is equally striking in the artist’s prints of sparely drawn and partly erased figures and his remarkable sculptures.’ Duncan Macmillan – The Scotsman (September 2019)
Henry Jabbour is represented by Pontone Gallery in London and Friedrichs Pontone Gallery in New York.
