I really like Kapoor's work. I think the way that he has used the materials he uses is very disingenuous. It is very hard to carve stone, but he has gone one step further by carving out the inside of stone to create a dark black hole effect, this is a very hard objective to achieve. During the video we watched, it was very obvious to see that Kapoor was very enthusiastic about his work which is good to see in an artist as the work produced is better. Kapoor is a painter who makes sculptures.
I think the critics were wrong to go against Kapoor as he has explored the internal language, but they have just looked at what he has done and instantly jumped to the conclusion that his work is easy to do so they have prejudged it as poor work.
My favourite piece of work that he has created is the one above of it is of resin with a bubble inside it. I like the way the colour has formed on this and the way the bubble is directly in the middle like it is trapped and waiting to get out or burst.
