Milow made his first cross-shaped relief in 1974; he went on to produce over a hundred such works in a variety of materials. All were originally titled A Cross Between Painting and Sculpture.
There is deliberate ambiguity in these works which can be seen both as religious artefacts and as art objects. In all his crosses, Milow seeks to establish a connection between the object and the architectural space it occupies. Although modestly-sized, they have an impact on relatively large areas of space.
