Sean Henry (b.1965)

2020 Gallery Exhibition: Waiting For The Sun

A video introduction to Sean's current London solo show at Osborne Samuel Gallery. This collection of new work is ambitious, in particular the dancing figures; it is such a challenge for the sculptor to capture energy, tension and dynamic movement. These figures echo some of his earliest works, perhaps the wheel has come full circle. It has been a difficult year and Sean has intimated that events in his personal life and of course in the wider community have influenced his new work. By engaging with these sculptures perhaps we become closer to understanding how we feel about and respond to the strange and socially distanced world we now inhabit.

Sean Henry in the Studio

Sean Henry gives us a glimpse into his working methods and studio in July 2020, near the end of the UK lockdown. With exhibitions in London and The Netherlands postponed until the end of 2020 and Spring 2021, this short film gives us a unique opportunity to see new works developing inside the studio, and to hear the artist's thoughts on their progress. The film has been sponsored by the Osborne Samuel, where Henry is scheduled to have a solo show in November 2020.
