Liles also creates minimalist sculptures. A series of large acrylic towers are basically 3-dimensional canvases of colored stripes, mimicking in plastic the stripe paintings of Paris. Using found objects, he makes sculptures from toy Legos, employing the modern sensibility of Pop Art in his explorations.
"The sculptures are based on my idea of what the skyscrapers should look like...conceived in brilliant color."
"A sense of invention and play is central to the sensibility of the art of Raeford Liles. He is delighted by gadgets, materials and process."
