Point of Interest Details

1968

Large abstract sculpture comprised of four rectangular aluminium sheets, mounted at an angle in a parallel arrangement between two blue-painted steel supports on a wedge-shaped concrete base. The siting, at an angle to the Music Centre, offers the major viewpoint from the path leading through to the University Plain, which emphasizes the debt to Anthony Caro in the geometry of the blue painted steel frame, to which Hoskin adds his own personal note in the aluminum panels.

The title One for Bristol refers to its exhibition in the group show at the Arnolfini Gallery, Bristol. The siting of the piece near Suffolk Terrace was agreed by the family with the then Vice-Chancellor, Elizabeth Estève-Coll, since the sculptor's daughter had previously had stayed there.
