The gallery has the pleasure to present from Saturday 14th of March 2020,  a solo exhibition of Susana Solano, with works from 1990 to 2016.

For Susana Solano, born in Barcelona in 1946, sculpture is not only about meditation around a form in space, the eternal concern of the sculptor, but must also be inhabited by a feeling, the strength of intention. His sculpture, most often made of stainless steel, is a journey through time. If Susana Solano produces few works today, she considers that a work cannot be duplicated, must keep its resonance and "work" over time. Besides, she herself speaks of her work with a certain reserve and radically rejects all rhetoric.


Different facets of her works are already presented in some important exhibitions. Among them, the last exhibition took place at l'I.V.A.M of Valencia in 2019, with a retrospective trail of sculptures, paintings and a remarkable installation which is constituted of copper and steel paving on the ground.
 
«  Art hides a meaning of time - the time which bring us to silence, to oblivion, to loss. Art belongs to canvas which encapsulates and reminds the temporal, the lignts which illuminate it, and the stares which approach it to explore what is entails. .../... There are a huge amount of experiences which compose the surface of ours lives. However, some of them succeed penetrating like arrows in the center of existence, reach certain neurological areas which constitute the receiving of our actions, our thoughts, and which are the intime sources of our emotions. Thoses deeps experiences of us, only us, are totally transformed, whether willing or unconsciously, in an universe dominated by memory and picture. Memory image is stored outside of the time, sailling freely through irregular areas of the ego, while retaining the right to appear or disappear by its desire. »
