Harry Stanbridge

B. 1943 Quesnel B.C.

Harry Stanbridge studied painting with Don Jarvis and Takao Tanabe at the Vancouver School of Art (now the Emily Carr College of Art + Design) from 1963 to 1968. After moving to Victoria, he taught art at Spectrum High School from 1978 to 2003 while maintaining a regular studio practice and exhibiting regularly throughout British Columbia, Alberta and Ontario.

Inspired by the West Coast style of Hard Edge painting, Stanbridge’s layered surfaces recall sublime emotions and have been described as “meditative devices or windows, through which the participating viewer can attain understanding” (Nicholas Tuele, former curator at AGGV)
