Lydia Dona

Date of birth : 1955

Country : Romania

Romanian painter, living in New York.

Dona’s work evokes lyrical abstraction and gestural painting (drippings), but shows a strict spatial organisation clearly seen in the straight lines that structure the painting.

Although her work is non-figurative, it nonetheless reflects New York through the graffiti, the drab industrial colours, the fading subway tones and the checkerboard plan of the city. His work presents traces, rather than images, of several pictorial movements and successive states of creation, all overlapping each other to create a kind of photograph depicting the artist's perception.


Her work is on display in New York, Los Angeles, Amsterdam, Zurich, Cologne, Vienna and Paris.
