Regen Projects is pleased to present a new body of large-scale paintings by renowned artist Anish Kapoor. Over the last 40 years, Kapoor has engaged a diverse range of media and materials to probe the qualities and contradictions of form and perception. This is the artist’s seventh exhibition with the gallery since 1992 and the first devoted entirely to his painting practice. The works in this exhibition demonstrate Kapoor’s deft handling of paint, with abstract forms created in thick, blood-red impasto set against ethereal expanses of vibrant blue and fleshy peach tones. Otherworldly yet brutally corporeal, these ambiguous forms suggest various states of expulsion. Some erupt in plumes of smoke while others luminesce in darkness; still others do not appear to be forms at all so much as the explosive aftermath of furious strokes and visceral smears of paint. Anish Kapoor (b. 1954, Mumbai) studied in London at Chelsea School of Art and Hornsey College of Art. He lives and works in London. Kapoor’s work has been the subject of recent exhibitions at Skulpturenpark Waldfrieden, Wuppertal (2022–2023), Centre of Polish Sculpture, Orońsko (2022–2023), and a major two-part exhibition in Venice at the historic Gallerie dell'Accademia and the Palazzo Manfrin (2022).
