Works by Alexandra Pacula – it is not smeared pictures, but oil paintings on canvas.
Works by Brooklyn artist Alexandra Pakula may seem blurry and corrupted photos taken at night at slow shutter speeds without a tripod. And then they will seem boring, well, except that the abstract bright. But the fact of the matter is that it is not at all photos: Alexandra – a talented artist, and these pictures are from a series Blurry Night City painted in oils on canvas.
She depicts the paintings of the “world of visual intoxication,” which, in her own words, it is most clearly reflected in the life of the city at night, when the sunlight is replaced lights promotional displays, signs, lights, garlands, car headlights and windows of high-rise buildings. The life of the big city beckons, mesmerizing, hypnotic, like a light bulb moths and other insects. Man enters this night world – and dissolved in it, absorbed in these bright lights and flashes.
