Four Corners was commissioned for the site of the old Salford Docks as part of the Salford Quays development as a reminder of the previous use of the site and the people who worked there.

The artist, with illustrator Ian Cantwell, worked with a group of 10 former dockworkers at Salford Quays Heritage Centre to draw scenes from the stories the dockworkers told of working life in Salford Docks. Themes included terrible working conditions, tragic accidents and funny scenes from everyday life. The drawings were then etched into 24 stainless steel panels and incorporated into the large steel sculpture which echoes forms used in marine architecture.
