YSP - Borofsky

In the summer holidays, a friend and I spend a day at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park. I'd been wanting to visit for a while and I wasn't disappointed.

These few posts aim to give you a flavour of just some of what was on offer.

Jonathan Borofsky's first Molecule Man sculptures were made in 1977-8 in Los Angeles and were inspired by the idea that humans are made of molecules; mostly composed of water and air.

Now, there are molecule man sculptures in locations around the world, including one standing 100 feet tall, on the banks of the Spree River, Berlin which once marked the division between East and West.

The three men coming together represent molecules joining to form our existence.

Borofsky  is an American sculptor, born in Boston Massachusetts in 1942.


  1. This I love. It actually does feel as though it's one with its surroundings. Really stunning piece.

  2. Beautiful - that's the sort of art in public places that appeals to me.
