Robin Tedesco is an artist and educator working in New Rochelle, New York. She has degrees in Fine Arts from Moore College of Art (BFA), Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and University of Delaware (MFA). Her abstract oil paintings on wood panels utilize many layers of color and reflect her human experience.
She describes herself as an archeologist and detective. She love to dig, uncover, restore, resolve, to look for what the light (and dark) reveal and transform. Her wood panels act like etching plates that she pushes color into and prints onto. They combine printmaking, drawing and painting that interlace to form an image that is cohesive, while also revealing the interior light and form that is present in the layers of pigment and texture. Her environment is rich with material. But in these paintings, wherever she is there is something to uncover and integrate. It is her commitment to convey the richness and depth of her experiences and observations in this work.
Her work has been exhibited and is in public and private collections internationally. She has taught all levels of drawing and painting for over 25 years. She resides in the Bronx, New York.
