The paintings that comprise Under the Iron of the Moon are dramatic and forceful. Colour is corporeal, gesture is commanding. Her work side steps the wry, sardonic demeanour that infects much contemporary painting, favouring compassion and joy in the way that she paints. Amidst the energy and power there is tenderness…there is time and space for the gentlest mark, small, discreet and vital.

Under the Iron of the Moon is the first solo project that Aida Tomescu has had at Fox Jensen Gallery… and yet it represents something of a homecoming for her painting. The gallery could not be happier to be able to present these works in the final exhibition for 2017.
