Moelwyn Merchant - Ascending Form

Moelwyn Merchant

Ascending Form



Presented to the University by the sculptor 1984

Location: Lower Foyer, The Queen’s Building, Streatham Campus

This piece, made from teak, was presented to the University by the artist who was Professor of English at the University between 1961 and 1974. A sense of gentle movement is given in a measured and quasi-geometric progression.

This striking sculpture was one of two presented to the University in 1984 by the sculptor.  In Ascending Form, you might see the hulls of racing-boats piled upon each other, precariously perched, ready to ascend or descend.
Please note that this sculpture is only accessible Monday to Friday in office hours.
