Richard Taylor

Milwaukee, WI

Wisconsin-based artist Richard Taylor is a sculptor, and also a painter. He describes his work as a distillation of life experiences, often seen through the influences of music and poetry. You will find musical cadences, rhythms, and syncopations informing the spirits of his pieces.

Sometimes found objects from walks serve as metaphors for the experiences and wisdom we accumulate walking through life. I use their shapes in metal and in paint to echo their continued callings to us as they are then found in new circumstances.

“Certain works are between painting and sculpture. The painted wall sculptures and painted standing sculptures fall into this category. Time plays a very essential part in these works as they are not so much about the details of the past as they are about the essence of remaining memories.” - Richard Taylor
