    I love this Artisit work, we were at Bradford Art gallery in Manningham Park here in UK last week and they have on show a more human scale Annish Kapoor scupture like this one. Too small to actually walk under of course but interesting all the same.

    You have taken an excellent shot of this the reflections on the scuplture work to expand the image neyond the frame edge. Very nicely done.

  • I also love Annish Kapoor’s work and this is one is one of my faves.
    I hope you enjoyed his exhib at the Bradford Art Gallery, sounds wonderful!!
    Thank you so much for passing by and leaving such a kind comment Glen. Much appreciated!!
    :-)
