Je ne suis pas un gentlemen, Bradley Harms, 2013

Harms’ work critiques contemporary social and technological developments.  Combining traditional hard edge abstraction with the aesthetic of digital design, Harms creates a stunning body of work. While the paintings appear to be created by machine, he painstakingly renders them by hand.  These paintings appear digitally perfect, but on upon closer inspection, the marks of the painter’s hand appear. This parallels the human condition. While many of us strive for perfection, perhaps it is within our flaws that true beauty lies.

About Winsor Gallery
Winsor Gallery is dedicated to the promotion of distinctive Canadian and international contemporary art.  The Gallery strives to ensure the long term development of its artists' careers, to support the emerging Vancouver art community, and to stimulate the engagement of its collectors. Working with painting, sculpture, photo-based and multi-media works, the Gallery offers an exciting exhibition program of solo and group exhibitions.

Having recently relocated from the high-end retail zone of South Granville to the burgeoning arts scene in East Vancouver, Winsor Gallery looks forward to fostering new relationships and collaborating with both established and younger galleries as well as artists in the neighbourhood. With the imminent arrival of Emily Carr University of Art + Design’s new campus on Great Northern Way in 2015, the gallery anticipates further strengthening ties with the school, its faculty and students.
