About Alla Viksne

My profession is painting, for it is my second, or main language. A paintbrush saturated with colorful substance, and a canvas or paper surface which receives its touch - these are the instruments which help me express my attitude toward the world in the most complete and adequate way.

I was brought up in the tradition of Russian Realism. At the same time, I was inspired by the masters of early, pre-revolution Russian Avant-garde. In the past, these used to be the extreme opposites, but now it is clear that they can be unified through creative synthesis which brings forth pictorial culture, freedom and stylistic flexibility.
