Book Description
Anish Kapoor is best known for his curvy, enigmatic sculptures in fiberglass, stone and stainless steel. These drawings represent a more private and personal side of his practice. This first book about the drawings ranges from the mid 1990s to the present with color saturated voids and eclipses that clearly feed and complement his sculpture. Jeremy Lewison, former Director of Collections at the Tate, who has known and worked with Kapoor for many years, places this recent work in context of early, overtly symbolic drawings, and of Modernist abstraction, in which Kapoor, like his colleagues, seeks to move beyond the decorative to the sublime. Drawings offers a host of new insights and images, and will be the standard reference on its subject.

Book Description
Intimate yet grand, the immediacy of Anish Kapoor's large-scale sculptural works is often said to evoke the sublime. His signature use of vibrant color, dynamic material, and organic forms combine to dominate, astonish, and redefine the relationship between object and viewer, sculpture and space. For Kapoor, it is the act of viewing, rather than the material, that consummates the work. In the new body of work presented here, Kapoor further explores the illusions of materials and surfaces, articulating his established dialogue between form and void, dynamic and static. A new large-scale stainless steel piece is accompanied by other new works that expand upon the familiar while introducing new methods of figuration. Essay by Anthony Vidler. Paperback, 8.25 x 10.5 in. / 128 pgs / 40 color and 10 b&w.


Out of Minimalism: The Referential Cube: Contextualizing Sculptures by Antony Gormley, Anish Kapoor and Rachel Whiteread

Book Description
This Ph.D. dissertation involves a threefold investigation of sculpture. Firstly, the interpretations are focused on particular artworks by three British sculptors: Antony Gormley, Anish Kapoor, and Rachel Whiteread, respectively. The notion applied minimalism is tentatively applied to their sculptures. A primary argument is that these works are idiomatically, thematically, and theoretically founded on the heritage of American Minimalism from the 1960s. The sculptures by these three artists are seen as readings and transformations in themselves of the Minimalist sculptural idiom. Secondly, the dissertation aims at an investigation of the notion of sculpture, which is explored as a discursive term, i.e. as a working notion. This dissertation argues that the notion of sculpture, specifically in the wake of Minimal...


Anish Kapoor: My Red Homeland

Book Description
Anish Kapoor is one of the most influential sculptors of his generation. Kapoor sees his work as being engaged with deep-rooted metaphysical polarities: presence and absence, being and non-being, place and non-place, the solid and the intangible. Throughout Kapoor's sculptures his fascination with darkness and light is apparent; the translucent quality of the resin works, the absorbent nature of the pigment, the radiant glow of alabaster, and the fluid reflections of stainless steel and water. Through this interplay between form and light, Kapoor aspires to evoke sublime experiences, which address primal physical and psychological states. My Red Homeland presents a welcome retrospective view of Kapoor's work since the early 90s. Edited by Eckard Schneider.~Essays by Yehuda E. Safran, Eckard Schneider and Thomas...
