Floating Shapes of Shadows and Unseen Marks


Bornin Spain, in 1952, Julio Rondo emigrated to Germany with his family in 1962, where he has continued to live ever since. The artist has exhibited widely across Europe and the USA.


Who Cares, 2019


Rondo has established an international reputation particularly for his geometrically structured work painted behind glass. The foundation for these works is based on memory. Rondo is fascinated by how memory and its journey through our emotions can define and alter our future. An experience we have once had will be remembered within a different reality and by an altered mind and as such, how we react to new experiences can often be based upon a recollection of a similar past event.

Rondo’s paintings are based on actual recollections of his past, a time, a place inwhich he once existed, they are at the same time forgotten and intensified. The compositions are snatches of memory that have been interpreted and manipulated, reduced even, to their purest essence; they are by their nature, deeply personal experiences.

The constant reflexive movement of his work perfectly represents the nature of memory. His works are composed of a painted wood backboard with a simple design contrasting a multi-layered grid and line structure of acrylic paint behind theglass. A subsequent empty space is left between the two, which gives his work a three-dimensional aspect.

Strange Form Of Life, 2011
Work on paper
42 x 59.4 cm


With monochromic shapes of grey or pale yellow painted on the background, Julio seems to suggest either an internal light or the allusion of a shadow. He uses colours with a strong impact such as black and red to form a contrast to the delicate layer of translucent single colour mesh. He reverses the common use of light and his work luminates from the inside; floating shapes of shadows and unseen marks, iridescent reds or deep purples filtered from the inside of the piece through the outside of the glass.

Julio Rondo has taken the subject of memory with its underlying character of chaos and abstraction and given us a beautiful body of work that exudes an overwhelming sense of peace and inner calm.

About the Gallery

PIFO Gallery concentrates on the participation of the course of Chinese contemporary art and the exploration of post-war European master artists and seeking for all possibilities of art power in the dialogue and collision between the two aspects. As a major gallery in China specialized in the study and promotion of abstract art, and also the main institution to continuously explore the various possibilities of figurative art at present, PIFO is convinced that the experience of art emerges from the new world created by one revolution after another; The artist's work is the third eye to explore the world. For collectors, PIFO provides expertise and encourages them to explore their own unique perspective because only the combination of the two can make a great collection. We hope to see a growing number of collectors to take on the roles of a connoisseur, with a more in-depth understanding of Asian and Western contemporary art, and appreciate the artists discovered, reshaped and firmly believed in by the gallery.
