Profile image of John AtkinEver since Henry Moore personally funded Atkin`s period of study at the RCA in London, 1982 to 1985, Atkin has continued to develop his studio practice, which focuses on the relationship between drawing and sculpture.

Sculpture description:
Huge Urban Abstract statue,
Massive Public Art Civic Pride Urban Focal and Centre Point sculptures by John Atkin who is sought after for his Large Public Sculptures. Hard Bop was commissioned by Sculpture site (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 neighbourhood and its position, at the front of the multi-purpose Award Winning building, is such that it acts as a Land mark 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.

"It is not hard to understand modern art. If it hangs on a wall it's a painting, and if you can walk around it it's a sculpture."
