The artist "starts with large pebble forms that are dotted with holes, then planted with moss. After a precise schedule of shade and mist, the moss develops into an organic glaze. The outer covering remains responsive to the effects of temperature and moisture."Art MOCO

"Kapoor continues to explore the notion of the void in these bold drawings of gouache on paper, further making the transition from exterior form of the object to its interior. The work is centered and the play between positive and negative space is a key element of the compositions. Movement in the shape of fibrous swirls leads to a change in light, drawing the eye outward to beyond the boundaries of the paper."See more work from the exhibition here.

"People I don't even know will often send me images of their work and ask for my opinion. I can remember doing pretty much the same thing many years ago. It's a very common thing to do. I think what it boils down to, at least it was for me when I presented my teacher with my latest effort in the hope of getting the great anointment, is that we are basically asking, "Do we have talent?" And often that means talent sufficient to be a professional artist, or at minimum, are we good enough to pursue this thing called painting, or are we just wasting our time?
It's the wrong question. In fact, I would say that if you are asking some master artist to confirm or deny your talent, you already are in a heap of trouble because it means you are not getting it. It's not about talent. Talent is a dirty word because it assumes that only a few are able when it is quite the reverse."
