Anish Kapoor, Ishi's Light, 2003
"A traumatised image of man emerged, perhaps most famously in the paintings of Francis Bacon, whose figures are characteristically enclosed and isolated. Though he resisted the abstraction of many contemporary artists, Bacon’s expressive handling of paint, allowance for chance elements, and use of imagery from photographs made him an important figure in the post-war reinvention of painting.
A visceral sense of enclosure is equally pivotal to Anish Kapoor’s sculptural installation Ishi’s Light (2003). Peering into the dark interior, visitors become part of a column of light generated at its centre. Kapoor’s work generates an immersive experience which elicits powerful physical and psychological responses."
