In Richard Taylor's "Crossroads" sculpture series, a number of two-dimensional figures walk along brightly painted geometric forms. In this first piece from the series, the dark outlines define and exaggerate the silhouettes, and the more subdued color of the figures contrasts beautifully with the multicolored shapes below. The painted surfaces have been scratched and worn to reveal the layers of darker paint and metal underneath, and the resulting lines add a sketchiness that highlights the movement and life represented in the sculpture. The figures also cast wonderful shadows on the wall beyond or surface below when lit from an angle!

Series: Crossroads

Signature: The artist's initials, "RT," are inscribed at the bottom right corner of the back side.
