About Paula Klien
by Denise Mattar

Paula Klien revealed his interest in visual arts from an early age, and surprise the family with the accuracy of his portraits. Young adult made free courses at Parque Lage, studied art history, but also stopped the music and dance. The inherent strength of his personality made each of these waters would drink greedily, in a vertical dive these sources. From the 2000 she integrated all this knowledge in the service of photography. Conducted campaigns and fashion editorials, which is characterized by the technical excellence, the perfect dynamic between model and clothing, but all created from an unusual look, a certain challenge to the conventions, permeated with intelligent humor. In this spirit presented in 2007 the exhibition "Cats and Shoes", a satire men, revealing some of their specific defects, especially those that bother women.

In 2010, He leaned over another male universe angle in the book "It's Raining Men". Sensuality, relaxation and mood again. In the exhibition "Edible", 2012, Paula met men and women, famous and not famous, under challenge: "Do you have what hunger?”. The result surprised by the many unusual situations created from the unlikely combination of simple elements such as fish, soap balls or cigarette butts, and the stripping bare bodies, without armor, totally unprotected in confronting their own choices.

His latest book of photographs, released in 2014, has the suggestive title of "People interest me". In the approach proposed by the attitude of the artist photographed was the focus, the starting point that determined the path of the test and its editing. Text for publication, Alexandre Murucci notes "the quality and refinement of the photos and the resumption of the investigation of sociological and aesthetic possibilities of portrait as a witness of an era ". Marcus Otter, in the same book talks about "transcendence and poetry that exceeds the actual limit and is stated in the territory of the mysterious and beautiful things".

Another look at the photographic production Paula Klien, shows that, in addition there is a continuous exercise the body as landscape: extensive skin surfaces, hair cascades, backs arched like mountains. There is even an explicit preference for black and white, who, excluding the color, thickens the message, intensifies form, concentrated look.

In 2016 these elements herald an inner need: the search of silence and introspection. A return to art Paula made a residence in the School of Visual Arts Kunstgut, in Berlin. produced little in the workshop, but he found a way. The meeting with India ink was a discovery, a watershed, and never the expression was so literally suitable for the process that Paula would develop in Brazil.

In one breath Paula creates a method. The expressive paintings spring from Paula Klien dive inside world, It keeps the spontaneity of the gesture that created them, producing a monochromatic range of extreme wealth. More than the material presence of paint, what is going on is the immersive intimacy of the artist revealing the universal truth of the relationship of each man with himself, the self faced with the struggle between constancy and impermanence, and metaphysical transcendence necessary to absorb the irrefutable axiom "continuum" of the universe, the planet, human – and the contrast with complex life we ​​build based on the permanence of illusion.

For this substrate, the work of Paula Klien, ranked first, as abstract expressionism, in the path of artists like Hans Hartung or Soulages, It is revealed in the very nearest real Gao Xingjian, ou Zeng Chongbin, Chinese contemporary artists who today impress the international circuit.

Exactly at such very essence, today fascinates the West, his work had immediate acceptance in Europe, unfolding an intense period of exhibitions. Not by chance was the only Brazilian artist invited to show Oriental Brush, at the Cultural Center Post-RJ, in 2018.
