The Open Wounds of White Clouds includes heroic works whose new larger fields has altered the opportunity for Aida Tomescu‘s paintwork to enact form and intonation in a newly liberated way. All the works are dramatic and forceful – colour is corporeal, gesture is authoritative. These qualities are given most latitude where the scale allows maximum opportunity for the cadence and command to amplify.

The above triptych, Tomescu’s largest work to date, has a grand musical action about it. A series of forceful passages build tone and density across the breadth of its score – a composition that has both delicacy and power. Seldom do we see painting that is sufficiently brave as to disentangle itself from the comfort of what we know and determinedly pose what we fear.

 

Exhibition opens: 2–4pm Saturday 7 September 2019
