One of the most important thing when artist expresses is how artist can evoke their attitude or expression instinctively in their works. Anish Kapoor is one of New British sculptors and tries to let people perceive his art work using a stimulation of sight. Although Kapoor’s work has an individual abstract figure and an ability to give to apprehend his concept instinctively.
Especially, Kapoor’s art works, Black and Yellow stimulate people’s function of perception directly. These pieces let viewer’s sensations reconstruct with physical and psychological experience by colors. Viewers deviate from their world which they are used to see, and their perception hovers. The experience can provide people to perceive Kapoor’s world, or how he sees this world, through their bodies. The world that he seeks to exist keeps iterating between material and immaterial, and itself is the coexistence and the movement. His color of work are just tools for creating the presence. He doesn’t use colors as an expression or any emotion but only as scientific function. In the fact, as he was interviewed, he said, “[…] the interplay between the phenomenological, the perceptual, and psychological is the heart of what makes art.” In short, he embodies this philosophy using colors which isn’t included any specific episode and emotion.
Kapoor’s works often put emphasis on a process or movement because an engagement with the nature and body action is vital for his concept, and it shows the phenomenon which iterates between material and immaterial. For example, My Red Homeland, 2003 and Shouting into the Corner, 2009, these works are moving or in the action of exploding. This method follows in Buddhism’s thought which form itself is emptiness; emptiness itself is form. Furthermore, Buddhism has the manner which seeks the essence in the process of practice, oneself own body being controlled. This attitude is dealt with in his works. In the fact, Kapoor said, “The journey of an artist is a journey of discovery and some engagement with the nature of material, with bodily things and all that has led me to this place.” In like this the quest, he built his own abstract style in order to make the existence of both extremities, material and immaterial, dark and light, visibility and invisibility, creation and destruction.
Consequently, although Kapoor’s work is categorized into abstract, his ritual of work gives viewers his thought vividly with their physical experience. With the function of action or nature, his ethos is appeared there sequentially. Process itself can be art, should be art. material and immaterial are opposite meaning, but they coexist in his work or conduct, it is engagement and his art.
