Meeting WALKING WOMAN in the sculpture park - Ekeberg. Norway


Who knows what or whom to meet when you take a walk in the Women Sculture Part at Ekeberg in Oslo.  In the afternoon well inside the park we met this woman - another sculpture at this place.

Read more of this work WALKING WOMAN BY SEAN HENRY here:
The British sculptor Sean Henry (born 1965) models his figures in clay before the are cast. 
Then he paints them. This artist's work has helped revive the age-old custom of polychrome, i.e. multi-colored sculpture. The tradition stems from Antiquity, when marble statues were painted in colors.

Henry's technique is striking and vivid. In public spaces, his naturalist figures are conspicuous, just as his sculptures are both lifelike and theatrical. They are reflections of ourselves and enhance our experience with life in our own world.

Sculptures such as Walking Woman are the artist's attempts to heighten our awareness of art and the nature surrounding it. The person in Walking Woman strides through the woods with purpose.
