NGA post Instagram of Aida’s Tomescu’s work in Part Two of Know My Name: Australian Women Artists 1900 to Now
‘There is a point when the surface I’ve been working with becomes very responsive, opening up, surprising me with unexpected possibilities. Then I … start inhabiting the work.
While my intention is clear, the resolution of the work is not yet guaranteed. It is at this point that painting begins.’ Aida Tomescu.
Aida Tomescu’s Ithaca paintings evoke the textures and colours of the frescoes and stone buildings of her country of birth, Romania.
