Face to Face – sculptures by Sean Henry

12 August 2017 – 5 November 2017

Exhibition – The Lightbox, Woking, Surrey, UK

‘Henry’s work is highly realistic and essentially modern in its choice of subject matter, colour and materials. His figures – often anonymous men and women – have an emphatic physicality which allows room for the viewer to draw their own interpretations, while deliberate changes to scale and colour imbue his figures with a powerful interiority and ‘presence’.’ Read more The Lightbox
