This book is published to mark the largest exhibition to date of sculptor Sean HenryA's work, set in the spectacular surroundings of Salisbury Cathedral. 'Conflux' brings together over 20 sculptures and installations of dramatically different scales by this innovative artist, occupying vacant plinths and open spaces on both the inside and exterior of this iconic 13th century building, creating a confluence of sculpture; HenryA's modern anonymous figures alongside the CathedralA's medieval and classical collection. Sean Henry's artwork celebrates the fragile individuality of anonymous men and women, challenging the viewer to contrast them with the timelessness and indestructibility of the building, with its memorials to important historical figures. For the Cathedral community, it offers an opportunity to remind visitors that the wide-ranging emotions and frailties displayed in the work are as relevant inside this living church as the refined memorials and celebrations of faith that have adorned the walls for generations.
