I am excited to be showing in TONDO, opening this week at Talon Gallery in Portland, OR.

Curated by Spoke Art and Talon Gallery, TONDO, is a group exhibition featuring over 40 artists working in the round.

Tondo has historically referred to a round painting or low-relief sculpture, derived from the Italian rotondo or “round.” Working in a range of styles and media, the participating artists used a circular surface as a starting point to create unique works with no thematic constraint.

Artists include:

Amy Ruppel • Andrew McIntosh • Alexander Fjelnseth • Allison May Kiphuth • Amory Abbott • Christian Castañeda • Christina Mrozik • Helday De La Cruz • Ivan Salcido • Brin Levinson • Jeremy Fish • Josie Morway • Katy Harrald • Keith Carter • Kevin Sloan • Kim Slate • Ryan Berkley • Maia Boakye • Matt Linares • Morgaine Faye • Neil M. Perry • Ryan Bubnis • Sally Deng • Tim Karpinski • Adam Caldwell • Alex Garant • Allison Reimold • Amy Sol • Evan B.

Mondo Tondo at Arcadia Contemporary

I am honored to announce that my work will be included in Mondo Tondo, a group show opening this Saturday, March 16th, at Arcadia Contemporary in Pasadena, California. Many thanks to Artefex for supplying each artist in the show with a 24” diameter circular panel on which to make their work. For my piece, I chose to tackle the subject of Ophelia, drawing inspiration from a poem by French poet, Arthur Rimbaud.

On the calm black water where the stars are sleeping
White Ophelia floats like a great lily;
Floats very slowly, lying in her long veils...
- In the far-off woods you can hear them sound the mort.
— Arthur Rimbaud, Ophelia

Mondo Tondo is free and open to the public. The opening reception will be held Saturday, March 16th, from 6-9pm. If you would like to know more about the show or inquire about any of the works show, please contact info@arcadiacontemporary.com.
