Crossroads is a full-size rendering of the maquettes that had led to The Meeting Place. As the piece progressed, I became increasingly interested in the interplay of forms, shapes, light, shadow, and the interaction between the viewer and the figures. In contrast to a great deal of my other work, rather than creating seductive textures and colours, in Crossroads I wanted to eliminate surface decoration and mark making in order to draw attention to the physical forms.
