ARTIST INTERVIEW

Watch our latest artist interview with Khaled Sabsabi

Ildiko Kovacs

b.1962 :

Ildiko Kovacs started her art education at the age of 17 when she studied for three years. In1980,she travelled to Europe to look at museums and galleries and when she got back to Australia began painting. In 1986, she began exhibiting with Garry Anderson who was instrumental in the development of her early career. He passed away in 1991 and Kovacs self- exhibited for nine years in Sydney. Kovacs has enjoyed great support from individuals such as Hugh Jamerson, Colin and Elizabeth Laverty and Ann Lewis AO throughout her career. In 1995, she took a trip around Australia and ended up for a time in Broome. This trip was pivotal in shifting her focus from European and American paintings, to the Australian landscape and artists. These experiences brought about a new found confidence and clarity in her painting. In 2005, the line works created with brushes came to their natural conclusions and from then, Kovacs has been experimenting with rollers which opened up a new mark-making process.
