Cassandra Tondro, "Fossil Finds," original abstract art

"Biosphere," original abstract painting, 30" x 40"


The biosphere is the global ecological system integrating all living beings, large and small. The iron oxide patterns in this original painting were created with unusual metal objects, some of which look like stars and fleur-de-lis. The rust was done in layers, and as it grew, it took on the appearance of creatures in a Petri dish. I masked out the circles and applied layers of contrasting cool-hued paint to create the micro-macro biosphere design. Graphite lines were then added to complete the piece and imply a connection between all living beings.

Color palette: rusts, dark brown, steel blue, grays
