The work of Paris-based painter Kim Roselier is definitely not the traditional watercolor form that many picture when they think of the art form. It’s the bizarre nature of her paintings that make them such captivating pieces of art.

The strange and eerie pastel colors only aid in the theme of the images, as it gives an almost hazy effect. Many of the paintings deal with the subject of masks that depict haunting and morbid personas. These strange masks can be interpreted as the faux-personalities than many people in this modern society display. In a way, the disgusting nature of the masks act as an association with the disparaging nature of showing a fake persona. Roselier’s watercolor art definitely transcends the classic form of painting.
