In December we will be exhibiting a new life-size sculpture by Sean Henry, one of the artists new works completed since his exhibition at the gallery.
As with all Sean Henry's works, at first glance this works seems highly realistic but on close inspection this is rarely the case. Often the facial features are subtly distorted. Henry's figures
are anonymous and the viewer feels compelled to fill the psychological vacuum. They are
passive because they are caught in a moment between action and inaction.

Polaroid Photographs with acrylic

Marc Quinn began working as a sculptor in 1984. Often grouped with the Young British Artists, Quinn is one of the most interesting
and compelling artists working today. Critical acclaim both at home and abroad has ensured that his work has been included in
numerous exhibitions around the world. Shows such as the Sydney Biennale in 1992, Young British Artists II at the Saatchi Gallery
in 1993 and Sensation at the Royal Academy of Arts in 1997 helped to enhance his growing reputation.
In December Osborne Samuel Gallery will be showing a selection of Polaroid photographs with vibrant acrylic paint which
the artist produced in 2008 and 2009.

||Omie - Bark cloths from New Guinea
The Omie work on bark cloth made by female
chiefs although the society is not strictly speaking
matriarchal. It is a utilitarian art in that the bark cloth
is also used in everyday life. Both men and women
use them as wraps for clothing and visitors are
offered them as blankets for sleeping. While used
in ceremony the cloths are also used as decoration
in their homes as room dividers laid over sitting or
sleeping areas and hung on the walls for ambience.
The art surrounds them just as the nature and stories
they depict are all around them. The women who
make the art go through a rigorous apprenticeship
that lasts for years before they are allowed to depict
the stories and motifs that are the subject matter of
the work. Once they achieve the right to make the
work, different artists express themselves according
to their own style.

From their language and art it appears that the Omie tribe originally
came from the south of Papua New Guinea, across the Owen Stanley
Mountains and descended as far as they could before being stopped by
the Orokaivans. After negotiations punctuated by wars and violence they
settled on the ridges where several villages are now located. The villages
are not unlike European hilltop towns, and command views that allow
them to monitor any movement below.
