About this artwork

The tondo format is especially suitable for this work, representing pure beauty, says artists Ani and Andrew Abakumovs. Tondo was rather popular during the Renaissance, and one of its most common subjects was the Madonna. Permeated with tenderness, this piece is very melodic, musical. It helps the viewer to abstract from the present moment and to admire the magic union of science and art.Ani and Andrew work together to create their signature series of fiber artworks. Andrew, a mathematician and programmer, developed an algorithm that creates a blueprint for each new piece. He also prepares each canvas by driving nails into the perimeter of the surface. Ani then strings different colored and sized thread layer upon layer, from hours to months until the image appears. She uses anywhere from 4 km to 20 km of the material for a single piece.
