The work of Los Angeles artist Virginia Broersma explores the concept of allure within the human form. Built of brash and intuitive marks that congeal into something very precise, her paintings have an intensity that is formed not only from the image, but from the intuitive action of painting itself. Though it deviates from the human form, Broersma’s imagery is complicated by associations one may have with the body such as attraction, repulsion, embarrassment or pride. Her work explores how even a distant representation of a person can be conflated with measurements of perfection, beauty and the ideal.
About her process and influences she states:
“I begin with something vague that I am interested in portraying – a gesture of the head, an interesting form, a location or a mood – and as I work it develops on the canvas. I am drawn to other painters working within abstract figuration that similarly use the paint  to really create, push, manipulate, and determine the form, such as Frank Auerbach, Willem deKooning, Chaim Soutine, to name a few of my favorites. “
