is an American painter. She studied Painting at Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah.
Virginia Broersma’s work explores the concept of allure in terms of the human form. Built of rough and loose marks that congeal into something very precise, her paintings have an intensity that is formed not only from the image, but from the action of painting itself. Though it deviates from the human form, her imagery is complicated by associations one may have with the body. She is interested in how even a distant representation of a person can be conflated with measurements of perfection, beauty and the ideal.
The world forgetting, by the world forgot.
Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind!
Each pray’r accepted, and each wish resign’d
