Paula Klien (BR)

artistic position

Back to her primary artistic manifestation, Paula Klien resumes the inquisition to her universe of fine arts in 2016 and finds in the millennial tradition of ink, the antithesis to her previous experience producing images with photo gear.

In her new phase, light and shadow are converted into a cornerstone of fluid and monochromatic abstracts. Conceptually, this investigation is in the field of spirituality, where the process becomes the tool for the quest of transcendence, timelessness, silence and surrender. The intimacy between spontaneity and control, action and inaction, visible and invisible, as forms, is unpredictable and limitless with no boundaries and unfolding by chance.

With the proposal of rereading the traditional “Chinese Ink Painting”, Paula Klien develops a very personal technique, turning into contemporary the classic version that has its origin in the influences of Chinese Taoist doctrine, by the principle of “let it flow“.
