“Her work seeks to translate art into something immediately catchy, making a connection between something known as iconic works of art, and something totally new to find that expression of amazement in your audience. For this she makes a deep study of her references that helps her to create and to overlap her own world in them and to rewrite history with its characters, the animals. This provides a great challenge, to be “multi-style”, to reproduce any technique but always faithful to her favourite tool, acrylic. Sol defines her work as a show that wants to entertain his audience, born with the need to surprise and make observation rather than an interaction. Once someone is caught by one on her paintings she hopes that person can see beyond the aesthetic and find the way to the true message. Connecting animals and art through feelings and real stories is her final and true objective, like making a homage to Picasso and the tender bond he had with his cat Minou, relating Frida Kahlo´s suffering with greyhound dogs which are so mistreated nowadays in our country or just mocking about humanity through classic art.”
