Urszula Broll was born in 1930 in Katowice, Poland. In 1953 she co-founded the group ST-53 (the name of one of the first post-war artistic groups in Poland, which was one of the first signs of opposition to the dominance of socialist realism in Polish art). She participated in all the exhibitions of the group during its existence.
Becoming a legendary figure in Katowice artistic community, she was associated with the avant-garde movement in Poland and exhibited with the Crooked Circle Gallery in Warsaw. In 1955 she received her Fine Arts Diploma in Katowice.
Since 1967 she participated in the activities of the circle Oneiron, which she co-founded. In the seventies, fascinated by philosophy and religions and the Far East, she co-founded Poland's first Buddhist community and actively participated in the group. Since 1983 lives in Jelenia Góra, but still it is connected with Katowice artistic circles.
She has participated in numerous national and international exhibitions. The works are in museums and private collections.
Broll is still working with Oils and Watercolors and is internationally known for her geometric, abstract forms and her studies of Hindu Mandalas.
Her early works not quite representational and yet haunting, have a pull towards the abstract seen in this painting as one image is layered on top of another and finally releasing itself into the evening sky, the collection of images dominated by a new moon looking over the scene. The trees covered with glittering snow and moonlight are absolutely beautiful, displaying a moment of wonder, leading up to the darker forest behind, and into the air.
