Maya Brodsky, “Brodsky Family Portrait”, oil on panel, 4.375 x 15.25 inches, 2008

Maya Brodsky was born in Belarus and raised in Brookline, Massachusetts, Maya received Bachelors degrees in painting and philosophy from the University of Massachusetts Amherst in 2008 before attending the Academy. Her paintings are inspired by notions concerning the connection between past and present and how one’s memory of the past is formed and changed visually. She hopes to allow viewers a glimpse into her personal vision and depict that which she considers ephemeral and therefore precious. By depicting the specific form of her personal experience, she hopes to protect it from the obscuring effects of time, as well as to imply the existence of something that transcends the particular forms of her subjective reality.
