She has had many solo and group exhibitions since 1995 and is represented in most State and some regional galleries.
Explaining Aida’s work is a quote from Deborah Hart, Senior curator, Australian Paintings and Sculpture post-1920, National Gallery of Australia.
“Tomescu’s mature paintings the sheer physicality of paint, its density and the archaeology of the layers, its application and movement across the surface, is inseparable from the content. The tenor of the work is guided by its colouration and by its internal rhythms, like the variations and tonalities in music. At times the density of the paint is reminiscent of earth or old walls encrusted with layers of paint and matter over time. In relation to mood and feeling, some of the cool, meditative paintings appear to be floating in space.”
Acquired by the Trustees from the 1995 Award.
