Brooklin A. Soumahoro – Solo Show – June 2021

Brooklin A. Soumahoro – Solo Show – June 2021


Opening June 11th. 4:00-8:00 PM


I am drawn to dualities and the interplay of oppositional forces. By stripping my work down to its most essential elements—line and color—I create artworks where contradictory ideas can coexist: stillness/chaos, violence/peace, time/timelessness, abstraction/figuration…

In my paintings, Energy field, I use carefully planned structures as a basis for intuitive mark-making in which gestural lines simultaneously form an underlying grid. The improvisational execution of the paintings ensure that each work is unique, with unrepeatable patterns that shift according to each viewer’s perspective, including myself. Each painting poses a physical challenge, which I ultimately enjoy.

Brooklin A. Soumahoro born in 1990 Paris, France. Lives and works in Los Angeles.

Soumahoro was included in the recent group exhibition Inner Realm at Massimo De Carlo, V Space (2020)
