Essay
The color discs stand side by side in varying density, the surfaces partly overlap one another, adding severe cumulation to the dense composition. However, the play with lucency makes for a pleasant lightness. This work is a wonderful example of how Ernst Wilhelm Nay's seemingly random images are based on intensively developed compositions.
