The exhibition will feature several groups of works created within the last year. These range from bright, translucent colourful forms to very organic-looking pieces, created with mud, cement and metallic pigments.

This duality echoes much of Kapoor’s past work; which takes forms created from highly-polished metals including stainless steel, gold, bronze and copper, and places them in a very different environment.

As the gallery puts it, ‘Kapoor proposes a complex dialogue between extremes – the earthbound and the transcendental, the colourful and the austere, entropy and the sublime.’
