Highly illustrated, "Full of Love, Full of Wonder" explores the oeuvre to date, showcasing Savvas' processes as well as the finished works, thus offering an unprecedented insight into both her large and small-scale works. Born in Canberra, Australia, from Greek-Cypriot parents, and moving to London in the mid-1990s in order to develop her career as an artist, her artistic identity is therefore an eclectic reflection of her multiple heritages. Contributors Rachel Kent, Patricia Ellis and Stephan Little offer their disparate view points and contextualize Savvas' work both within the Australian, Greek and British contemporary art scenes, the historical canon of art and the pop, kitsch and Zen cultures which Savvas' work balances with curiously harmonious ease.
