Gladstone Gallery is currently exhibiting new work by the sculptor Anish Kapoor at both its 24th Street and 21st Street locations.  The exhibition is the first at Gladstone’s new gallery space on 21st street.  Kapoor uses divergent materials such as stainless steel and vibrant colored dyed wax to make his work, always placing a premium on the viewer’s interaction with the sculpture.

Kapoor was born in Bombay, India in 1954 and has lived in London since 1973. A Turner prize winner, he has been commissioned for several large outdoor public sculptures, most recently a memorial to British victims of 9/11 which will be installed in Hanover Square in Manhattan.

Mr. Kapoor has said that he strives for materials that are able to “make something else possible . . . the non-physical things, the intellectual things.”
