ANISH KAPOOR’s stacked aluminium sculpture, Simcoe Park, 250 Front Street West

Adjacent to CBC’s Broadcasting Centre, in tiny Simcoe Park, sits one of the finer pieces of public art in TORONTO  – a city not known for fine pieces of public art.  It’s by British sculptor Anish Kapoor.  Indian-born, a Royal Academician and a Commander of the British Empire, his work is shown worldwide.  In North America, his best-known creation, Cloud Gate, is the centrepiece of Chicago’s Millennium Park, and he’s currently working on a project for London’s Summer Olympics in 2012.

The TORONTO sculpture (Untitled, 1995) is made from stacked aluminum layers cut with waterjets.  It’s wonderfully photogenic.
