Ana Soler is a new artist exhibiting at ARTregards.com. Born 1972 in Sevilla, Spain, she has already a tremendous portfolio to present with most interesting themes and varied approaches. She followed her art education, starting in Sevilla, and was awarded scholarships to Firenze, Edingburgh, Strasbourg, Rome and Basel. She was invited to several stays in Nagano and Tokyo in Japan, Taiwan and to a resident program in Ottawa. Furthermore Ana Soler received scholarships from various art museums in Spain.
With her most recent art installation project with 2’000 suspended tennis balls that appear to bounce through Mustang Art Gallery in Alicante she gained international attention also throughout the world wide web.
One important topic of Ana Soler that inspired her to many of her works, is the notion of pain. Pain as a very important issue in our lives reminds us of our vulnarability and death, therefore also of our existence. Scars are encravings of suffered pains and an imprints that never erase, physically or mentally.
“The installation “Stab in the Air”, consisting of a cloud of 3000 knives floating in the air, is a metaphor for the silent pain that is known to those who experienced it. It represents those thousands of aggressions that many suffer daily and that no one brings up as they experience them deep down inside alone. Invisible micro wounds.” (Ana Soler)
In other works Ana creates knives as instruments that cut away but also grow on the other hand. They can hurt but the wounds could also inspire new thoughts. What an interesting revelation.
And what about love? Love may leave wounds at some point, tender or bitter, deep or trivial, and engrave scarves in our heart and soul. Beautifully symbolised in this petal image.
Ana Solers’ work is broad, very reflected, inspiring, involving and most interesting. We will let you know of her other topics in one of our future blogs. All images are available as e art cards at ARTregards where you can see more of her interesting art or find the link to her website.
