Paul Klee - Man of the Moment - The EY Exhibition

Paul Klee is the man of the moment.  With a huge show of his work on at the Tate Modern, his work is a joy to behold all in one place.  Paul Klee is a grower for me; when I was younger I loved dali and the more famous characters of the surrealist movement, but I then started to notice Klee’s paintings after one of my best friend’s told me, 'Klee is my mother’s favourite artist'. I was interested by this comment. I then started to look more closely into his work and have done ever since.  You can actually see his influence in my artwork and he will always be a grounding influence in my work. To me his work seems playful and delicate. (I am trying to be more delicate with my work but I have a tendency to be bold and not very subtle) His colours are all quite muted and calming. Believe me, it is very hard to make these colour combinations, and make them work in such a way. One wrong colour and the whole painting has a different feel.  I have tried!



Klee saw his art as a process of spontaneous creativity and natural growth, exemplified by his famous description of drawing as ‘taking a line for a walk’.   I really feel art should be about the journey and not all about the end product. If you look through a book of Klee’s work you can tell that it’s obviously all his work but you can see so many different directions and paths that he has taken. If there is too much emphasis on perfecting a style you never explore anywhere new and embrace the changes you make.

Klee has been variously associated with ExpressionismCubismFuturismSurrealism, and Abstraction, but his pictures are difficult to classify. He generally worked in isolation from his peers, and interpreted new art trends in his own way.

Klee worked as a teacher at, The Bauhaus from 1921 and even though he was one of the most beloved teachers inside the school, he differed from the Bauhaus philosophy in some important ways.  He developed some reservations towards the idea of the collective. Klee and his colleagues regarded art not as craft, nor as technique, but as a reflection of an internal and thus natural characteristic.

I have included my favourite Klee paintings within this blog.
