Lydia Dona

Abstract painter Lydia Dona was born during the communist era in Bucharest, Romania, her family fled to Israel, and she later settled in New York. Influenced by the conceptual movement and by Marcel Duchamp, Dona explores the impingement of technology and machinery on the body in contemporary culture. By combining broad expressive brush strokes with detailed line drawings, Dona has developed a language of paintings that is both representation and abstract.  

Lydia Dona’s work has been internationally exhibited in solo and group shows, including Hong Kong Contemporary, Tang Museum at Skidmore College, NY, Chelsea Art Museum, NY, Dorsky Gallery, NY, Birmingham Museum of Art, AL, White Columns, NY, and The Corcoran Gallery of Art, DC.
