As the title suggests (a tondo is a Renaissance term for a circular work of art), this artwork is part of a series with a circular form without edges.
It is made of paper painted with ink and enamel, then glued on a canvas.
Its round shape confers it a multidimensional character, since it can be hanged, in line with the artist's intention, in four directions.
As often with Kröner's work, poetry and beauty emerge from the subtle combination of a relatively rigid framework (here, the vertical and horizontal grey lines), with more random and lively colour marks.
Based in: Pforzheim
Harald Kröner is a German artist who could be described as "paper artist", producing essentially works on paper and collages. His work involves also public installations.
Harald Kröner works thoroughly with paper, of which he is a notorious collector, whether it be artist paper, printed sheets, or papers collected in his daily life, transforming them into drawings and collages.
His works are made predominantly with coloured ink, but stain, lacquer, spray or enamel can sometimes be used in the creation process.
Lines, very present on his artworks, can be the result of a pencil stroke, a cut, the edge of a torn paper, dripping ink or the borders of collaged paper underneath his paintings.
Chance plays an important role in his work, which explores the limit between hazard and control, order and chaos.
