Richard Taylor: Syncopations in Metal

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″)

J’aime le Chocolat! J’aime la Vanille! 2010; 60 x 133 x 5, aluminum, oil & enamel paint, varnish

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.

Some pieces are too tall to complete vertically in the studio.
