Communion is an exhibition of work created over the past five years by Harry and Linda Stanbridge and curated by George Harris. The Stanbridges have shared their work and lives and 35 years. The exhibition title is a testament to their ongoing partnership and commitment to Christianity.

The essence of their art practice has been described as a desire to express in a material way “the still quiet place in which one engages the Other”. They use optical devices in a non-narrative and almost meditative manner. Harry Stanbridge creates op-art canvasses with grids, plaids and squares that question visual perception and optical reality. Linda Stanbridge is known for symmetrical relief sculptures employing geometric primitives and installation perspectives. The wall pieces, constructed of ceramics and metals, are like visual anagrams in three-dimensional space. The canvasses and the wall pieces are large and expansive, filled with light and physically commanding.
