Aida Tomescu’s new exhibition Eyes in the Heat opens at Sullivan+Strumpf. Tomescu’s first show with Sullivan+Strumpf marks a turning point in her work, taking on new possibilities with renewed confidence, uplifting energy and an exhilarating sense of wildness.
More than two years in the making the high heat and explosive character of this new series is unparalleled in Tomescu’s work and culminates in her largest painting completed to date, the title work Eyes in the Heat. The two distinct installations over both levels of the gallery brings together Tomescu’s rich, intense layers of colour and a feeling of urgency, immediacy and openness.
“I paint to break the surface illusion of paint, to find what’s underneath. Form in painting is not an object, not a shape. It is a quality with the power to transform, to change."
— Aida Tomescu, 2015
