Seeing Red

Indian-born, UK-based Anish Kapoor is one of my all-time favourite contemporary artists, so I was in 7th heaven when I discovered this very sensual ‘lickable’ work – “Untitled 2007” – at the Gallery of Modern Art (GoMA) in Brisbane. Made of highly reflective lacquered resin fibreglass it explores Kapoor’s passion for the colour red. Reflections you see in it are an integral art of the work. Kapoor’s love of RED is also beautifully documented in his very luscious book on the subject, “My Red Homeland” Anish Kapoor.
