The range of sculptor Richard Taylor apparently is endless. His inventive work covers outdoor public installations, lacy hanging sculptures, playful standing creations and poetic wall hangings. (Above: Zip, 2012; 36″ x 74″ x 4″)
His wall hanging works, his most recent expressions, are chic urban convergences of painting and sculpture. Rhythmic and expressive, they are intimate interpretations of enduring memories. –Troy Folliard Gallery
Taylor says his work ” allows the cadences, rhythms and syncopations of music and poetry to find themselves in visual expressions in paint, metal and space. I distill my emotional history with my daily perceptions to create two- and three-dimensional statements which speak of my walk through life. ”
Taylor’s monumental outdoor works have brought him huge popularity in Wisconsin, where he is based, and considerable attention elsewhere.
