Beverly Pepper’s Walk Through is a sculpture in two parts. When installed, the two rectangular forms, which are slightly larger than a pair of people, are placed about three inches apart and perpendicular to each another to form an L shape. The exterior of the work is highly polished stainless steel and the interior is coated with a vivid blue paint.

Pepper polished her stainless steel surfaces to a mirror shine so that works like Walk Through would reflect the natural surroundings in which they are placed, creating a connection to the landscape and encouraging us to see ourselves as part of the sculpture. The painted interiors soften the otherwise rigidly geometric surfaces and create a space that is open yet contained.
