Sean Henry: Standing Figure (Man) & Standing Figure (Woman)
2019 & 2020 | painted bronze | Park Drive (exterior) | Art Map reference: E13 / E14
In their hyper-realism, these figures could be mistaken for real people. It is only when you move closer, and their slightly larger than life scale can be truly appreciated, that this illusion is shattered. Henry’s figures occupy space in a unique way, firstly we can consider the Man and Woman’s relationship to one another, and secondly, we consider our own bodies in relation to the figures and the space around us.
