The paintings of Colombian artist Solon Marcel are surreal visions that merge dreams and reality, defying the ordinary and normalizing the absurd. A perspicacious observer, Solon lifts the veil of habitual perception exploring the boundaries of human potentiality. Paranormal phenomena, artificial intelligence, and alien encounters merge with everyday imagery, memories, and pop culture forming vivid scenes that jokingly question our understanding of the status quo. Solon’s meticulous attention to detail goes beyond mere replication. Rather, it invokes the uncanny, suggesting an alternate truth where colors and shapes coalesce in a mesmerizing dance of the mind. He explains, “I try to make paintings that are about scenes that maybe pass through your mind, but you've never seen. I try to bring something new to the table as an image of something that is happening, that in real life you will not see, something almost imaginary, from dreams.”
