Bradley Harms: Halberds Army
September 10th- October 10th, 2015

Winsor Gallery is excited to announce the second comprehensive exhibition of abstract painter, Bradley Harms in Vancouver. A leader of the Canadian abstract movement, Harms has exhibited throughout Canada, as well as on the international stage – Chicago, New York, San Francisco, Miami, Munich, Sydney, Singapore and Tokyo. The exhibition entitled "Halberd’s Army” runs from September 10th – October 10th. An opening will be held on the evening of Thursday September 10th, from 6-8pm; Bradley Harms will be in attendance.

“To say that there is an attitude of confidence in Brad Harms’ paintings is on understatement. Certitude of form, color and finish verges on arrogance. Still his paintings compel the viewer, beckoning us into their dialectic tension, a volley between method and imagination, structure and illusion. Combining the look of digital image-making techniques with Constructivist, DeStijl and Op Art sensibilities, Harms’ paintings advance the language of abstraction to the far side of postmodernism. They are precise and clean. They are impeccably crafted. Their format and scale sets up juxtapositions between calculated design and pictorial composition. These paradoxical moves within Harms’ fixed vocabulary of color, form, figure and ground set the stage for the conceptual underpinnings of these seductive and intelligent paintings.”
