SOULINEART: THE COMPLEXITY OF PERSPECTIVES SURROUNDING US

Orfano Solange is an Argentinian artist currently residing in Spain, he is a world traveler. Through his work, Solange tries to reflect how labyrinthine reality can be. Combining different techniques and styles, the artist recreates the complexity of perspectives surrounding us. The lines prevail in Solange's works, through which the artist seeks to create more complex structures and symbolism.

"Why should I go outside if I can close my eyes and create worlds? After the serious issue that occurred worldwide with the pandemic, both artists and anyone who has needed an escape route from the physical confinement suffered for long months, have created in their heads countless worlds to take refuge from anxiety. Hell has come to light that have not been seen for a long time. Life stopped. The incessant machinery stopped, and when we closed our eyes we find ourselves naked as a reflection. The alchemy of the transmutation of emotions has been the only salvation, in honor of the dreamers who have managed to wreck the madness of the century, of the abandoned souls."

Symbolism in literature is distinct from symbolism in art although the two were similar in many aspects. In painting, symbolism can be seen as a revival of some mystical tendencies in the Romantic tradition and was close to the self-consciously morbid and private decadent movement.

There were several rather dissimilar groups of Symbolist painters and visual artists, which included Paul Gauguin, Gustave Moreau, Gustav Klimt, Mikalojus Konstantinas Čiurlionis, Jacek Malczewski, Odilon Redon, Pierre Puvis de Chavannes, Henri Fantin-Latour, Gaston Bussière, Edvard Munch, Fernand Khnopff, Félicien Rops, and Jan Toorop. Symbolism in painting was even more widespread geographically than symbolism in poetry, affecting Mikhail Vrubel, Nicholas Roerich, Victor Borisov-Musatov, Martiros Saryan, Mikhail Nesterov, Léon Bakst, Elena Gorokhova in Russia, as well as Frida Kahlo in Mexico, Elihu Vedder, Remedios Varo, Morris Graves and David Chetlahe Paladin in the United States. Auguste Rodin is sometimes considered a symbolist sculptor.

The symbolist painters used mythological and dream imagery. The symbols used by symbolism are not the familiar emblems of mainstream iconography but intensely personal, private, obscure and ambiguous references. More a philosophy than an actual style of art, symbolism in painting influenced the contemporary Art Nouveau style and Les Nabis.
