Sean Henry: Time Being

Sean Henry: Time Being

3 - 26 November 2016
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 exhibitions in New York, Brussels and Bad Homburg, Germany. Sean’s work has continued to evolve, both in scale and complexity, his working methods are the same, his subjects perhaps more challenging and diverse. His sculptures continue to surprise and in settings as diverse as Glyndebourne Opera or the lofty heights of Salisbury Cathedral they take on a new dimension, composing a new and stimulating dialogue with the viewer. His figures are never static, always on the cusp of an unknown transformative experience, either spiritual and physical. […]

Robert Doisneau

Robert Doisneau

In 1948 the great French photographer Robert Doisneau set up his Rolleiflex camera in the Galerie Romi in Paris, hidden behind an antique chair, to capture the reactions of passers-by to a strategically placed painting of a nude in the window - salacious by the standards of the time. Capturing a variety of emotions from shock and discomfort, to intrigue and amusement – Doisneau’s witty portrayal of the Parisian voyeur, in the ultimate ‘candid camera’, was an assignment for Life Magazine and published in the same year.
The series has become one of his most famous works. […]
