Alla Dulh creates from the intersection of nature and spirit, her paintings are a spontaneous expression of a state of open channel, of no-mind. She is dreaming the images without knowing how the visuals got there, she paints without rational control. She says in painting she moves from concentration and control to a point of losing control and then continues painting without knowing.
Alla’s subject matter depicts various means toward this clarity of awareness, visual images of spiritual practices in action toward achieving the clear and open mind. Eyes and hands, monks and musicians, elemental figures in various states of the meditative mind. You could say her paintings are channeled from this meditative consciousness, a clear uninhibited and most natural awareness.
Her work inspires this state in the viewer, the visual representation stays true, showing the clarity from which it was created. One can’t help but experience this state of presence when witnessing Alla’s paintings. Alla Dulh paints on natural-aged wood surfaces as if to emphasize a concrete relationship between her subjects and the simplicity of what is, the images emanate from the substance of living organic material.
Alla says, “For me, the way of art of is going to the God, not coming from the God, not analyzing your own fears, your individual story. Art goes to the substance of the universe, and answers the questions what we are and what is around us.”
