Anish Kapoor RA is one of the foremost artists of his generation.Hismajestic, beguiling sculptures, awesome in their size and simple beauty, at once demand a physical response and suggest ametaphysical realm.Working with contrasts between formand void, and light and darkness, and employing intense colours and refined surfaces, Kapoor evokes the spiritual ormystical, and creates optical effects that challenge perceptual certainties. This richly illustrated book traces Kapoor’s artistic development during a career spanningmore than 30 years. Eminent scholars explore the philosophical issues pertinent to his work and examine its place in the history ofmodern sculpture, in relation to theMinimalist tradition that it extends and in the context of contemporary practice.

As the razor-sharp commentary by Harvard scholar Bhabha illustrates, Kapoor's leviathan-sized objects essentially work as architecturally arcane generators of mythic and poetic experiences for onlookers.- ArchNewsNow.comAbout the Author:
