'My interest has always been to arrive at a unified image with fullness and clarity, to find a reality which affirms its own existence.
There is a silent moment in painting when we experience an absolute, total intelligence in the work through which everything comes together. The logic that develops is stronger than any emotion. The painting begins to project back and I become aware of another presence; the subtle, vulnerable structure built from paint. Aida Tomescu, 2015
