[NSFW] These Watercolors Would Make Georgia O'Keeffe Blush

Love, lust, desire, and the body all get explored in the abstract watercolor works of Paula Giriadă. The compositions in her series, Another type of love, are akin to Rorschach tests, the dark blots replaced by lighter tones but with the same sense of movement. Her frenetic gestures come through clearly in the pieces, colors colliding with the fragile fluidity of her medium.

Another type of love is a watercolor project which includes a series of paintings included in an easy abstract zone,” Giriadă tells Creators. “So, the project is made of watercolor paintings which were scanned and, some of them, zoomed (for creating another pieces from the initial paintings). This project reflects some ‘wrong’ thoughts, deep feelings, and carnal love.”

Giriadă’s earliest childhood memory of making art connects pretty closely to her practice now. She would often grab a fistful of three to four crayons and create “some sort of weird abstract drawings.” With this series, she chose an automatic way of creating, picking the colors spontaneously and creating based on her “instinct and feelings on that moment.” But one thing remained constant: the pieces were inspired by her feeling towards her husband, her “lover at that time.”

“After collecting a couple of paintings for this project, I found that people are sitting more than one minute for one piece and it was fascinating to observe what they particularly see in my works,” she explains.

The artist is currently working on a photo-collage project, a “form of art that helps [her] express any crazy idea that might be in [her] brain.” No matter the medium, Giriadă gets a certain freedom from artmaking.

“I feel like I can say anything,” says Giriadă. “I can simply put any part of one photo near another one, without having any connection and, in the end, to transmit something to the onlooker.”

She hopes that her pieces inspire viewers to see their surroundings in a new way — and to express their realities as they see fit.

“Be more present, see it and use it to transform the ordinary into beauty,” says Giriadă. “And say it, out loud, even it’s forbidden or taboo or wrong or insane. Exhale.”
