Nike Savvas’ first exhibition in Melbourne since Atomic: Full of Love, Full of Wonder at ACCA in 2005, Sparks will showcase a new series of prints and vibrant wall-vinyls - like ‘molten suns’ - and feature large woven sculptures akin to those exhibited in Liberty and Anarchy, at Leeds Art Gallery (2012 -2013).

A sculpture from this exhibition inspired
Sparks. Savvas reflects:

“The dynamic optical experience of this work coupled with its playful physical dimension and immersive luminous shooting rays of yellow wool invoked something primal and poetic within me, as though the sky were giving birth to a million suns.”

Exhibition closes: 5 April 2014
