Aida Tomescu: Into A Carpet Made of Water

Into A Carpet Made of Water is a solo exhibition by one of Australia’s leading contemporary artists Aida Tomescu, its name is taken from the early poems “Under The Iron of the Moon” by the Austrian writer Thomas Bernhard, whose works span natural themes, death, and beliefs.

The artist’s unique and powerful paintings are the result of the poetic process she describes as repeated layering, erasure, and ruthless questioning of images to discover and locate new content in each series.

The keystone of this exhibition is established by a group of huge paintings completed between 2019 and 2021. The intensity and nuance of these works are higher, and the way of level expression is more subtle, and it is also clear that painting is increasingly entering the way of painting. They are characterized by the use of cadmium red, alizarin crimson, magenta, cobalt violet, and cadmium maroon, creating a wild and often whimsical playful counterpoint with the accompanying series of calm and reflective called Silverpoint I-IV Contrasts with his small paintings.
