Mara Sola (1975).
Spanish visual artist based in Norway since 2012.
Sola's main medium is painting, but she also applies other media. To date, her work has been influenced by the notion of alienation and the feeling of not belonging to any place in particular. New locations and the personal response-awareness to new surroundings have challenged her with questions on qualities and different levels of consciousness and the construction of self, leading to contemplate transpersonal psychology as developed by Carl. G. Jung and others. With a shy and melancholic mood of alienation, silent adaptation, and understanding of the inner worlds the paintings convey "dream-scapes" where the borders between real and surreal become ambiguous.
