About Alla

Alla Broeksmit, born in Ukraine, lives and works
between London, New York, and Maine.

I imagine travelling alone in a foggy space, the twilight of dawn is revealed and concealed. I am standing in front of the canvasses. Are they windows, or doors, or mirrors? These new paintings are self-portraits, but the surrogate self is a chameleon; the image can become one’s own image, no matter who experiences it. This allows the essence of the viewer to be revealed as if in front of a mirror-like surface. The painter and the beholder have become one, united. The surfaces, textured and layered, are created with soft transparent colors and chant like ritual of repetition that reflects our inside light. They become portals to the very illusion of ourselves, behind the layers of paint. The landscapes are lifted towards the center of the composition, opposite axes are intertwined and the essential is revealed: the landscape of the heart.
