One of the most influential sculptors of his generation Anish Kapoor is most famous for public sculptures that are both adventures in form and feats of engineering. Whether he is creating immense PVC skins, stretched or deflated; concave or convex mirrors whose reflections attract and swallow their surrounds or recesses carved in stone and pigmented so as to disappear, his works invite the viewer to the inner reaches of their imagination.
“I think I understand something about space. I think the job of a sculptor is spatial as much as it is to do with form.”
