Construction Tondo No.2

GEOFF THORNLEY (b.1942)

Construction Tondo No.2
Acrylic On Boards
Diameter 1700


Although not the largest of the artist's tondos, this is the most complex of the series produced between 1981-82. This work, like every other in the series had its origin in a watercolour study. The constructions were all made of plywood sheathed with gessoed canvas. Each separate element was painted then put together to complete the work. As with the other tondos, the amplitude and openness of the circular field is cut into by the wedges in its perimeter.
