Clement Meadmore was a major 20th-century sculptor with many works in situ across North America, Australia, and Japan. They were often commissioned as design features within substantial architectural installations and urban design projects in the International Style. Their heroic and rhetorical positioning on the forecourts of large corporate towers, on university campuses, and other public institutions could almost be classified as a cliché of mid- to late-20th-century visual experience, except that his works captured attention on their own merits.
