Item description for Anish Kapoor Whiteout by Anthony Vidler & Anish Kapoor...
Intimate yet grand, the immediacy of Anish Kapoor's large-scale sculptural works is often said to evoke the sublime. His signature use of vibrant color, dynamic material, and organic forms combine to dominate, astonish, and redefine the relationship between object and viewer, sculpture and space. For Kapoor, it is the act of viewing, rather than the material, that consummates the work. In the new body of work presented here, Kapoor further explores the illusions of materials and surfaces, articulating his established dialogue between form and void, dynamic and static. A new large-scale stainless steel piece is accompanied by other new works that expand upon the familiar while introducing new methods of figuration. Essay by Anthony Vidler.
