Anish Kapoor’s work is abstract and uses a broad range of materials and processes. In his work, I have noticed he constructs pieces around certain shapes like squares and circles. His work ranges from very clean shapes to very jagged surfaces.

By investigating Kapoor’s work, I feel I have broadened my knowledge of how to combine different materials to create a whole. It has been interesting looking at his work, as I now realise how you can play with scale and shapes or themes.
