In recent years, an Award from the Rootstein Hopkins Foundation allowed Atkin the time away from academic responsibilities, at the School of the Arts, Loughborough University, where he is Reader in Fine Art, to concentrate on developing his long standing interest in collage, into a series of small and large scale digital prints th...

Sculpture description:
Massive Public Art Civic Pride Urban Focal and Center Point sculptures by John Atkin who is sought after for his Large Public Sculptures. Hard Bop was commissioned by Sculpturesite (San Francisco) on behalf of LARAMAR Inc.. for the Centre-Point of their Prestige Redevelopment of Fillmore Plaza, San Francisco. The sculpture formed part of a new Plaza Regeneration project for the Fillmore neighborhood and its position, at the front of the multi-purpose Award Winning building, is such that it acts as a Land mMrk at different times of the day and throughout the seasons.
Artist's comments:
Fillmore is historically regarded as the Harlem of the West Coast. Famous for it legendary Jazz heritage, it was important that the sculpture referenced notions of music and rhythm. To this end, the stainless steel forms of the artwork are inspired by the movement of a conductors baton, as it moves through the air: and the machine head granite keys reference the kinds of tuning devices common to a number of string musical instruments.
