Gallery director Peter Osborne:
'So much has been happening with Sean Henry since our last show at the gallery in 2012. In the last year alone, he has had solo shows in New York, Brussels and Bad Homburg, Germany, and Sean's work has continued to evolve, both in scale and complexity. His working methods are the same, his subject matter perhaps more challenging and diverse. His sculptures continue to surprise and in settings such as Glyndebourne Opera or the lofty heights of Salisbury Cathedral they take on a new dimension, form a new dialogue with the viewer. The North Yorkshire Moors are still to come.
This engagement with the world is at the heart of Sean's work. His figures are never static, always on edge of some significant change, either spiritual or physical, they draw you in emotionally, ask questions, expect you to share in their fortunes and misfortunes.'
