In 2011, Capper received the Royal Society of British Sculptors Bursary Award. In 2009 he was the youngest artist ever awarded The Jack Goldhill Prize for Sculpture from the Royal Academy of Arts and was nominated for the Jerwood Sculpture Prize.
Rotary Paintings references the timelessness of modernist art: the boldness of their shape accessing both Jasper Johns’ Target (1961) and Damien Hirst’s Spin Paintings (1992-2008), while the colour and unique consistency of the paint bears similarity to the hand-painted steel sculpture of David Smith. Each painting forms a record of the day on which it was made, the titles being drawn from media headlines and government briefings swing from absurd to caustic in their humour.
