I am only recently aware of Anish Kapoor’s work, although he’s been producing stunning minimalist sculpture/art for years. This small collection shows some of his use of pure color and form, and the three-dimensionality is really intriguing, and inspiring.
So well known in his native Britain to be commissioned a huge 2012 Olympic sculpture, Kapoor is not afraid of scale, and exploring ideas of space, depth, and purity. I really like his approach. While it’s true that an artist starting out couldn’t begin to afford to create enormous pieces like Leviathan below, he pushes limits and conceptions, which is all I could ever ask of an artist.
Here’s a short video of the Anish Kapoor describing a recent show called Flashback at the Manchester Art Gallery.
