PAULA KLIEN / Artistic position
Back to her primary artistic manifestation, Paula Klien resumes the inquisition to her universe of fine arts in 2016 and finds the millennial tradition of ink, the antithesis to her previous experience producing images with the use of technical apparatus and machines.

In her new experience, light and shadow are converted into a cornerstone of fluid and monochromatic abstracts. Conceptually, this investigation is in the field of art and 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.

'Manifestation-works' reveal mysteries of the intangible explored by the artist. In her lyrical abstractionism, canvases and three dimensional objects get materialized in a homogeneous and elegant way, treading however raw lines with no props.

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.’

Born in 1968 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Lives and works in Rio de Janeiro.
