Borofsky makes his mark on the landscape

Take a walk through Yorkshire Sculpture Park at Bretton and you become inspired by the natural beauty of the cultural landscape with its art installations from artists such as Henry Moore, Anthony Caro, Sophie Ryder and David Nash to name but a few.

One piece which is always guaranteed to stop you in your tracks is a seven-metre-high aluminium plate sculpture of three connected male figures.

Jonathan Borofsky's Molecule Man 1+1+1 (1990), has been delighting visitors in its hillside location at the park since its arrival, in 1996.

It represents a rare opportunity to see Borofsky's work in

Britain and in the landscape, and his figures are a fine example of the immediacy and accessibility of sculpture in the open air.

The stunning contemporary sculpture towers above the viewer in a vivid and dramatic way and captures a stereotypical human pose.

Born in 1942 in Boston, Massachusetts, Jonathan Borofsky is one of America's leading and most enigmatic artists.

Over the last 33 years, Yorkshire Sculpture Park has been based in a 500-acre 18th-century landscape near Wakefield and has become an international centre for modern and contemporary art, experienced and enjoyed by thousands.
