Yehuda Britman now paints through the eyes of a man who lives in
Yehuda Broitman transforms plain canvass into extraordinary art with a passion that leaps straight from his soul and an eye that perceives what many other artists are blind to.
Here is what different personalities of the art world have said about Yehuda Broitman:
Dr. A, Borosky, a world-known authority on contemporary art, who has lectured on this subject in such institutions as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; Christie’s School, London; the University of Southern California:
“This is probably the first time that an artist of textural trend, knowing the rules of deconstruction games, is so literally, fully, appetizingly tied to a texture…” (from Dr. Borosky’s essay in the catalog of Broitman’s one-man exhibition,
J. Taylor Basker, professor of art history (who curated an exhibition of Yehuda Broitman’s work in the Monserrat Gallery,
"Yehuda Broitman brings a vision to his art that combines the realities of both the seen and the unseen. His art springs from contradictions, from deep emotion and from the unconscious. Unique in his honest search for expressive form, he refuses to be bound to one style, one school of painting. Broitman paints simultaneously in both a free, loose abstract style and a disciplined, intense realism, which ruthlessly studies the world of appearance in minute detail. Broitman sees no conflict between alternate realities, both of which are aspects of a single truth… Broitman presents a vast landscape of apples and cloth that overwhelms the viewer with power and craftsmanship… He paints with the skill of an old master transported into an age of doubt and search” (from J. Taylor Basker’s essay for the catalog of YoYehuda Broitman’s exhibition in the Monserrat Gallery).
Anita Arkin Steckel (an accomplished Master, from whom Willem De Kooning has purchased five works of art, and of whom he has said that her work is a “cat’s meow”):
“When you teach, you try to plant a seed. In Yehuda Broitman I saw this seed begin to floYehudash and grow beyond my wildest expectations” (from the preface by Anita Arkin Steckel to a catalog for YoYehuda Broitman’s one-man exhibition in the Russian Museum of Ethnography, St. Petersburg).
