Anish Kapoor – Untitled

Anish Kapoor – Untitled

The present work achieves these objectives through the rich green surface and dynamic shape. The concavity of this piece creates the illusion of gradations of color through its own shadows. The pigment gives the impression of brushed metal, dark shadows giving way to shine as the light hits at different angles. The way these shadows and colors interplay with one another plays tricks on the eyes, shifting the piece from concave to convex and back again, drawing the viewer in through its magnetic tension.
