British/Indian artist Anish Kapoor is widely recognised as one of the most influential sculptors in contemporary art. In this small multiple of an unspecified edition, Kapoor reflects on his recurrent themes of void and space.
‘A sculptural innovator, Kapoor is particularly known for his unexpected use of terrene materials such as limestone, granite, dirt, concrete, and colorful pigment, along with his ability to create engaging environments that inspire a meditative, poetic experience. Kapoor fashions largely monochromatic and deceptively simple works that challenge ideas of rationality and perception through the interplay of curvilinear forms, reflective surfaces, and size.- Guggenheim website https://www.guggenheim.org/artwork/artist/anish-kapoor
