Inspired by Anish

On Thursday night I was falling in love with sculpture again when SBS screened a documentary "The Year of Anish Kapoor". Colour, reflection, interiors, exteriors, rusting hulks, mammoth, creating, decaying, time, space, illusion, inclusive, exclusive......AMAZING. I love everything he does.

My favourite piece of all is the incredibly tactile and edible looking Svayambh, above. It's name is a Sanskrit word meaning "self-generated". This piece is created from a vast block of vaseline, paint and wax that was slowly pushed through a doorway, shown here at his recent exhibition at the Royal Academy in London.
