In the later part of Lynn Chadwick’s career he moved away from the representation of seated and standing figures from the 1970s and set himself the new challenge of capturing figures in motion. Stairs, 1991 shows two female figures ascending and descending a flight of stairs caught in contrary motion. While their bodies and legs are naturalistically modelled, their polished triangular faces remain ciphers. They pass each other without acknowledgement.
Represented by Blain Southern.
