  • Statement

    Writing on aesthetic issues in art and design is an important part of Iliescu’s practice. Her book The Hand and the Soul: aesthetics and ethics in architecture and art was published by the University of Virginia Press in 2009. Iliescu’s other essays include “The Garden as Collage” (Studies in the History of Gardens and Landscape Design, fall 2007), “Beyond Cut-And-Paste” (Places: Forum of Design for the Public Realm, spring 2008), and “Laocoön” (City Secrets: Rome, Robert Kahn, ed., spring 2011).

  • Biography

    Sanda Iliescu’s practice spans the media of painting, drawing, and collage. Outside the studio, she makes murals and public art installations, some with students at the University of Virginia, where she is Associate Professor of Art and Architecture. Born in Romania, Iliescu received her BSE in Civil Engineering and M.Arch in Architecture, both from Princeton University. Her professional awards include The Rome Prize, a McDowell fellowship in painting, The Distinguished Artist Award of the New Jersey State Council of the Arts, and, in 2018, the Truninger Art Fellowship in Zurich, Switzerland. In 2009, the University of Virginia Press published Iliescu’s book The Hand and the Soul: Aesthetics and Ethics in Architecture and Art. Tentatively titled Looking Deeply: Essays on Art and Architecture, her current book manuscript will be published by Rutledge Academic Press in 2021.

    Stories of Ivy Road: Found Objects, Portraits, Conversations
    The Jefferson School City Center, Charlottesville, VA
    Jan. 2015
    Iliescu, Phoebe Crisman and 15 UVA students celebrated the diversity of life along a commercial strip of Ivy Road. Two L-shaped vertical black planes, each with its own window, created a rectangular space. A third horizontal black plane held the evidence of the street: washed, ironed and cleaned fragments such as broken bottles, cigarette buts, toys, car parts and lottery tickets. Along with taped interviews and black and white portraits of passers-by, these recovered fragments painted a picture of the consumption and personal behaviors of people inhabiting the street.
    Snowballs on Steps (for David Hammons) Jan. 2013 Outdoor staircase on the University of Virginia campus
    After a snowfall, on the afternoon of January 24, Iliescu and her painting students created an evanescent installation. They made carefully crafted snowballs and arranged them on the steps of a prominent outdoor stair.
    Un-Painting: from Yellow to White Sept. 2011 West Wing Gallery, School of Architecture, UVA
    Executed over a 12-day span, this project transformed a yellow wall by gradually draining it of its color and returning it to neutral white. The project afforded passersby a visually stimulating experience of 12 transitional murals in golden yellows and complementary blues and purples.
    Lines of Darkness and Light Sept. 2010 The Rotunda at the center of the UVA campus
    For seven days the south columns of Jefferson’s Rotunda at UVA were veiled in dark, transparent material. Designed by Iliescu and executed by university staff and volunteers, this installation marked the Day of Dialogue at the University of Virginia, an event that focused attention on the problems of violence and intolerance on campus. http://www.virginia.edu/dayofdialogue/dayofdialogue/artproject.html
    The Fun Bus: A Bus Painted for Children Aug. 2008 Charlottesville Public Schools
    Working with artist volunteers and children in a city-run summer camp, Iliescu transformed an old school bus into a vividly colored “fun bus” for kids. The Charlottesville Parks and Recreation Department, Piedmont Council for the Arts, and The Bridge Gallery sponsored the project.
    Sixteen Silos, Sixteen Shades of Yellow
    Lafarge Cement Terminal, Money Point, VA
    Iliescu and Phoebe Crisman worked with student volunteers to design, construct and install 150-foot-long yellow pennants from the sides of LaFarge cement silos. The Elizabeth River Project (Norfolk), Lafarge Cement Terminal (Chesapeake), and The Institute for Environmental Negotiation at UVA sponsored this project.

    Public bathroom in the University Art Museum Annex, UVA
    Inspired by the dedicated work of Mrs. Daisy Walker, an office janitor, Iliescu designed a mural in the public bathroom of an art museum building. The mural’s geometric shapes correspond to simple objects in the room such as the mop, bucket, soap dispenser, towel holder and grab bars.

    Iliescu designed this collaborative project for 3rd graders from a local elementary school and students at the UVA School of Architecture. Children painted trees, flowers, buildings, and finally a collaborative mural called “Monster Making Machines.” UVA graduate student Elisa Niemack documented the work in a video, along with footage of the children describing their thoughts on what drawing meant to them.
    271 Words: The Gettysburg Address on Beta Bridge Sept. 2005 Beta Bridge on the UVA campus
    On the parapets of a campus bridge at the University of Virginia, Iliescu orchestrated the painting of the Gettysburg Address by passersby. Each participant painted a single word in the 271-word address. The project was conceived in response to the painting of racist and hate graffiti on this bridge and other locations on campus.
    Herakles Nov. 1994 The American Academy in Rome; Rome, Italy
    Iliescu designed the stage set for John Eaton’s opera Herakles, performed at the American Academy. Along with paint, wood and other conventional materials, Iliescu used plastic trash bags, a lightweight and inexpensive material that she processed to create different textures and light effects.

    Stories of Ivy Road: Found Objects, Portraits, Conversations

    The Jefferson School City Center, Charlottesville, VA

    Jan. 2015

    Iliescu, Phoebe Crisman and 15 UVA students celebrated the diversity of life along a commercial strip of Ivy Road. Two L-shaped vertical black planes, each with its own window, created a rectangular space. A third horizontal black plane held the evidence of the street: washed, ironed and cleaned fragments such as broken bottles, cigarette buts, toys, car parts and lottery tickets. Along with taped interviews and black and white portraits of passers-by, these recovered fragments painted a picture of the consumption and personal behaviors of people inhabiting the street.

    Snowballs on Steps (for David Hammons) Jan. 2013 Outdoor staircase on the University of Virginia campus

    After a snowfall, on the afternoon of January 24, Iliescu and her painting students created an evanescent installation. They made carefully crafted snowballs and arranged them on the steps of a prominent outdoor stair.

    Un-Painting: from Yellow to White Sept. 2011West Wing Gallery, School of Architecture, UVA

    Executed over a 12-day span, this project transformed a yellow wall by gradually draining it of its color and returning it to neutral white. The project afforded passersby a visually stimulating experience of 12 transitional murals in golden yellows and complementary blues and purples.

    Lines of Darkness and Light Sept. 2010 The Rotunda at the center of the UVA campus

    For seven days the south columns of Jefferson’s Rotunda at UVA were veiled in dark, transparent material. Designed by Iliescu and executed by university staff and volunteers, this installation marked the Day of Dialogue at the University of Virginia, an event that focused attention on the problems of violence and intolerance on campus.http://www.virginia.edu/dayofdialogue/dayofdialogue/artproject.html

    The Fun Bus: A Bus Painted for Children Aug. 2008 Charlottesville Public Schools

    Working with artist volunteers and children in a city-run summer camp, Iliescu transformed an old school bus into a vividly colored “fun bus” for kids. The Charlottesville Parks and Recreation Department, Piedmont Council for the Arts, and The Bridge Gallery sponsored the project.

    Iliescu designed this collaborative project for 3rd graders from a local elementary school and students at the UVA School of Architecture.
