Stavros Messinis in this series presents for first time works from the ongoing series Sovereign Sun. This series is inspired by his poetic composition Έαρ το Πρώτο (First Spring).
These works feature intensely coloured circles, minimalistic compositions that depict light, its spectrum and the chromatic effects of the spectrum when separated into its component colours. The artworks of this series are based on special photos of the sun, taken at the terrace of the Hamer Hall of the Arts Centre, Melbourne.
The Sovereign Sun series is part of an ongoing exploration of photography and poetry examining the possibilities of abstraction, colour, light, space and minimalism.
