Henry Jabbour
  • Work
  • Biography
Henry Jabbour is a painter and printmaker. He trained in the visual arts in Edinburgh and New York where he obtained a Master of Fine Art in Painting and Printmaking.

Henry’s work generally focuses on the human figure. He is interested in the emotive qualities of body gesture, colour and mark making. His 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. His work embraces both the familiar and the unexpected, and combines observation, memory and intuition. Although much of his work has a biographical element, his intention is that each piece develops a visual presence that is independent of him, or his original artistic intentions, so that the viewer can continue the search that he initiated.

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