Sol Villanueva

I envision art as a testimony, a means of documenting a place, time or person. I take over my own reflection in a mirror and prosaic photographs to give them a new meaning.

I delve into the self-portrait genre as a path to self-knowledge and I assert that the most personal reflects universal topics such as self-assertiveness, vulnerability, selfishness, and exaltation of the self. My artwork involves timelessness and immortality, transcending the physical body and death.

Naked in front of the other, I work recording moments, using photographs, mirrors, or natural subjects. I explore old photographs of distant relatives and strangers. The personal merges with the universal. Immigrants in search of a better future, a family with features that are as distinctive as unremarkable. I am interested in bringing them together, knowing and seizing them; capturing the way they walk, pose, or look into the camera. As a result, my artwork creates a space where serenity and melancholy bring back the memory of a better past.
