About the Artwork

Anish Kapoor’s art is always striking, his pieces delivering a captivating experience. In this series of Shadow prints, as in his monumental sculptures, Anish Kapoor puts the relationship between conflicting energies at the center of his creation. It is during particular moment when matter is transformed and slides from one state to another; between empty and full, light and darkness, formed and unformed, that the artist feels most empowered.

"When I was making the pigment pieces, I felt more alive than I’d perhaps ever been in my life."

Anish Kapoor

A colour of intense depth gradually focuses into a bright luminous vertical white; absorbed by the vacuum at the center of the print, the viewer is drawn into a breath-taking visual experience. These prints posses a three-dimensional quality, which is reminiscent of Kapoor's sculpture. The viewer is constantly pulled back and forth between pure color and bright white as if pulled into some vortex.
