Small and big thingsLightness and strength in the artwork of Susana Solano

September 15, 2022 / October 28, 2022

The exhibition Small and large things: lightness and strength in the artworks of Susana Solano made it possible to exhibit more than twenty pieces by the artist in a unique way. Since the 1980s, Solano has exhibited her work in numerous galleries and institutions throughout Spain and the rest of the world.

At Artur Ramon gallery, artwork designed and created by Susana Solano is also far from what we are used to expect from art. Small or large, in different sizes, they are “things” can live together here as in home. They are lovely presences. Inside the gallery, pieces are experienced close, they look at each other, both in their differences and in their similarities. They establish a family bond whose explanatory meanings cannot be claimed. The pieces are simply there, still, in harmony. It makes no sense to decipher the meaning of each one of them.
