The painting is one of the most sought-after designs for installation, made in oil-pastel and pencils, forms that have occupied for decades the internationally acclaimed artist/visual philosopher and pictorial “Odysseus” Jannis Kounellis. Similar works have been hosted in the most important galleries and museums of the world. Once again he depicts the cyclical movement, the eternal return, which is the basic meaning of his philosophical quest as well as the relationship with the center; very characteristically adopting one of Malewitz’ stances, he writes “I want to open myself to space… I make a hole in the canvas so infinity can come in”.
