Francisco Solana

Francisco Solana

Francisco Solana?s interest in Antarctica (Madrid 1968) appears from his necessity to innovate in search of the light. He started to develop the movements of men on a boat?s deck, trying to combine the figure and nature itself, and little by little he got caught by the white light reflected on the boat?s deck. Time passed and he was afraid of being categorized as a painter exclusively focused on nautical themes, so he decided to disembark himself from this kind of themes, and could not find a better place to land as Antarctica, an inhospitable, white and heartbreaking continent.
