Anish Kapoor

Yesterday I went to see the Anish Kapoor exhibition on at Manchester Art Gallery, and it is excellent. His sculptures feel completely fresh, like ways of viewing new landscapes. The pieces in which he focuses on void spaces mess with your eyes, and they really give a sense of some unknown type of emptiness. One of the things I like is that he aims to get rid of the 'artist's hand' so that there is no evidence that he has made the work, therefore appearing perfect and self-created.
Having never seen any of his work before, i'm very glad I went to see this.
