Carlos Solis – Classical Surrealism

Artist statement:

I tried to convey and stimulate the mythical and spiritual elements of visual expression. My passion in painting started with the magnificence elements of nature, fauna, and flora, and it’s the natural beauty that involves its selective conditions. For example, the majestic animals of the Amazon or Indians from Venezuela (Guajiros). However, I always try to expand my work to other areas of reality and with a spiritual meaning; therefore, I, occasionally, have the tendency to go from one extreme to another in order to explore and show the ranges of styles and techniques by creating the most beautiful and delicate components of life to the most complex and strange art.

Fortunately, I have the pleasure and the opportunity to experience the richness of many cultures in South and North America, which allows me to expand my imagination even more; it also helps me to understand the differences and similarities of both worlds. My work reflects the distinctness of my artistic perception from those experiences, which provides vivid colors and physical details in order to make something visually pleasing, grotesque, or unfamiliar to look at. Furthermore, I also try to create awareness and express an opinion about our delicate habitat and lack of knowledge about cultural and racial diversity in S. America.
