Spoke SF is pleased to present Tondo, a dynamic group exhibition featuring over 50 artists working in the round.
We challenged some of our favorite artists to work on a round surface and left the rest up to them. The result is a stunning display of the endless possibilities contained within a circle.
Tondo has historically referred to a round painting or low relief derived from the Italian rotondo or round.
Simultaneously working within the bounds of the circular form while coloring outside the lines only as artists can, each piece plays with the definition of tondo. Using neon, painting, cut paper, embroidery and more each artist has taken the challenge of an unconventional format to give new dimension to their work.
