Sarah Tomasetti

b. 1968

Sarah Tomasetti trained in Italy under Leonetto Tintori, and went on to develop new permutations of the ancient art of fresco painting that lend her paintings and drawings a delicacy and illusion of fragility that is at once aesthetically seductive and thematically poignant. Recent works engage with the complexity of our shifting relationship to the natural world, dealing particularly with glacial and mountainous landscapes that are in a state of rapid change. Following a postgraduate degree in Fine Art, Tomasetti gained a professional qualification in fresco painting in Italy in 1995. On returning to Australia in 1999 she completed a Masters by Research at RMIT University. Her work is held in a number of collections including Artbank, Macquarie Bank, National Australia Bank, BHP, Grafton Regional Gallery, in private collections in Australia and overseas, and is included in Contemporary Australian Drawing by Janet Mc Kenzie.
