Aida Ashall is a painter who selects vibrant colours to energetically cover the entirety of whatever surface she has chosen to work upon. Using a variety of brushes to make her marks, Aida delicately reaches into crevices and corners on the rear of a canvas frame as well as making broad, gesturing brush strokes that dance across flat surfaces. Aida works predominantly on canvas frames, but also on paper, sculptural objects, and in deconstructed sketch books.
