Robin Tedesco

Artist Biography

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 experience living in Italy and now in New York.

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. The environment in NYC 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 20 years. She resides in the Bronx, New York.

Artist STATEMENT

I am an archeologist and detective. I love to dig, uncover, restore, resolve, to look for what the light (and dark) reveal and transform. My wood panels act like etching plates that I push color into and print 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. The environment in NYC is rich with material. But in these paintings, wherever I am there is something to uncover and integrate. It is my commitment to convey the richness and depth of my experiences and observations in this work.
