Installed in 1995 ‘Arrows and Obelisks’ by Peter Logan follows in his long history of kinetic art. The ‘Arrows’ or arms of the sculpture gently move in the wind and dance around the central pyramid or ‘Obelisk’. The whole structure sits on three giant cast copper shells. Logan’s understanding of mathematic and engineering can be seen through the smooth and natural movements of the arrows. The sculpture divides opinion and is mainly ignored by passers-by, but there is something magical and relaxing watching the arrows sway in the breeze .
Peter Logan was born in 1943 and graduated from the Slade School of Fine Art in 1968. Find more information about Peter Logan and his works here.
