UNTITLED BY BOB SLOAN [ANOTHER RED METAL THING]

    UNTITLED BY BOB SLOAN [ANOTHER RED METAL THING]


    Ireland appears to have a huge collection of red metal things and in general I have found it impossible to find out anything about the sculptures or the artists and in some cases I end up not being not at all sure that the item in question is in fact an example of public art.

    It took me a long time to track this down but I know that it dates from 1992 and that the artist responsible is Bob Sloan and of course it is untitled [enter ‘untitled’ and see how many results are returned].

    My understanding is that this was relocated from Riddel Hall to May’s Meadow in Belfast City.

    Bob Sloan is a practising sculptor since the 1960s. The artist studied at the Belfast College of Art [1959-63] and the Central Schools of Art and Crafts, London [1963-64]. His work can be seen in many public collections including the Arts Councils of Ireland and N. Ireland, the Ulster Museum, the RUA, The Queen’s University of Belfast, Laganside Corporation, the N. Ireland Housing Executive, the N.I. Tourist Board, the George Cross Memorial Garden and the Royal Ulster Academy as well as in private collections in Ireland, England and America.
