Our planet is going through a profound process of awakening. As consciousness shifts, we begin to feel a sense of love and compassion and a connection to all living things. Adjusting to the new energetic frequencies can be uncomfortable, often accompanied by emotional highs and lows. On a societal level, chaos and confusion arise as old institutions fade away and new ones begin to form.
In the "Awakening" series, Tondro excavates older work, transforming it into something new using layers of addition and reduction. She mines her observations and emotions to create expressive paintings that explore the range of experiences around transformation.
