Anish Kapoor’s sculptures deal with ideas of sexuality, spirituality and the sacred. Three consists, paradoxically, of four separate forms, two of which are coated with loose pigment. The forms suggest complex, organic structures that are both voluptuous and repelling.

Kapoor has said: ‘I don’t wish to make sculpture about form-it doesn’t really interest me. I wish to make sculpture about belief, or about passion, about experience, that is, outside of material concerns.’
