Well dressed, well formed but unthinking is how Chadwick described the figures in his small series of staircase sculptures of the 1990s: “They pass on the stairs, but do not see each other” (quoted in Judith Collins, Lynn Chadwick: The Collection at Lypiatt Park, New York, 2006, p. 188). This explicit absence of interaction is unlike almost all of his earlier multi-figured sculptures, which hinge on the reciprocation between figures, or as Chadwick termed it “attitude,” whereby his subjects acknowledge their shared space. Whether marching in step or sitting together on a bench the relationship is often endearing, or at least companionable. A shared bench comes with an awareness of proximity, even between strangers, whereas stairways are unusual in providing a space where two figures come into close contact while preserving their anonymity. The two women in Spiral II recall the unconnected figures of M.C. Escher’s staircase designs in which the inhabitants are so far removed from one another that they exist in separate gravity wells (see fig. 1).  

Chadwick had begun to experiment with this theme of stairways as early as 1988, but it was not until 1990 that the first bronzes were cast. The series includes only two works with a spiral staircase: Spiral I was conceived in 1990 and is half the height of Spiral II, conceived the following year.
