Acrylic on canvas
ø 90 cm
Pulsating with brilliant color, Ugo Rondinone's "sun" paintings comprise one of the artist’s most celebrated and longstanding series of works. Executed with acrylic spray-paint on an entirely round canvas, each "sun" painting, as the artist describes them, consists of several bands of hazy color, as though they are emanating from the center of a circle. Each vivid shade is airbrushed into the next, which helps to create the illusion that the work is moving with a hypnotic rhythm and that the canvas is receding into a concave shape.
