In this etching Kapoor uses the vocabulary of his drawings and preparatory sketches for his sculptures. The dark shape, in Kapoor’s signature colour red, set against a fluorescent pink, recalls the organic form of his famous installation Marsyas in the Turbine Hall at Tate Modern in 2002. Intensity of colour, often using pure colour pigment, is a hallmark of Kapoor’s work. The artist relished the challenge of achieving the same dramatic effects of colour and depth in the two-dimensional etching medium.
