For someone who is not knowledgeable or is inattentive, the
painting of Paula-Gina Baranovschi can easily be considered as a product
of the non-figurative decorativism, which becomes profound through
visual references from the sphere of Cubism and even from metaphysical
But the painting of Paula-Gina Baranovschi is far from being
only the conjunctural expression of a meticulously chiselled craftsmanship
or of an excessively taught spirit. Fortunately, we are dealing with an
obviously strong and very authentic talent, able to walk a personal way
among cultural deposits who usually stifle similar attempts by those who
don`t have not enough performing artistic instincts.
There are many arguments supporting this assertion.
First, it should be noted the strength of the vision that manages
to keep together a huge volume of signs and symbols, often contradictory.
Probably inspired by the practice of the masters of analytical Cubism - who
surrounded by their eyes an object in order to get on the canvas a unitary
image of it, simultaneously from all possible angles -, the process used by
the artist assumes the orbital motion of a haunting dreamlike entity,
investigated in its multiple manifestations - from dream to nightmare.
Secondly, it is obvious the vitality by which the painter puts the
colours, traces the brushstrokes and individualizes the contrasts.
Thirdly, the naturalness of expression makes possible the access
of the onlooker to the maze of a boundless fantasy; the effort to decipher
the images - which seem super sophisticated at first glance - can turn in an
elusive manner into a state of inner contemplation of a quite familiar
universe. This `magical` effect, hard to describe in words, but omnipresent
in true art, leads us to follow the future development of the creation of
Paula-Gina Baranovschi with maximum attention.
