London, 31 March – 6 May 2017
Anish Kapoor, one of the most influential artists of his generation, presents a major exhibition of new work at Lisson Gallery London, marking his sixteenth exhibition with the gallery. The show explores the affective nature of painting from the multiple perspectives of Kapoor’s varied working practice. His works evince overlapping dimensions, at once image and object, illusion and representation, substance and skin, surface and depth.
The exhibition debuts three large-scale, amorphous, hybrid forms that exist somewhere between paintings, sculptures and anamorphic objects. These signal an important development into sculptural objecthood from the expressive silicone ‘paintings’ that premiered in the artist’s last London show two years ago. The exhibition features work further exploring the shift between two and three dimensions, including a pair of red stainless steel mirrors – employing different types of reflectivity – as well as a number of significant gouache works on paper made over the past six years.Read more
