Marisu Solís

Marisu Solís

Born: 1957

Hometown: Madrid

Based in: Madrid

I am the third of 8 siblings, daughter of a doctor. I was born in Avilés, Asturias, in February 1957. My paternal grandparents lived in Cuba and at 9 months with my parents and my two older sisters I spent a month there shortly before the revolution.

My approach and taste for landscapes and nature began as a child with the summers in Bañuges, a small fishing village next to Cabo de Peñas in contact with the sea, going fishing by boat. Also with the excursions to Picos de Europa with my parents and brothers, which later became long days of skiing.

My Cuban grandmother was a painter and that helped me at home when I started to draw and paint to prepare for the entrance exam at the San Fernando School of Fine Arts in Madrid.

I started to prepare in Avilés with Santarúa where I did my first spots and when I finished high school I went to Madrid to continue preparing for admission.

I attended drawing classes first with Amadeo Roca and later with Francisco Merallo. And I studied Fine Arts at the School of San Fernando in Madrid.

I learned to paint with oil, but from 1987 I switched to acrylic, which allowed me great freedom of work: "I finally didn't have to wait a lot of days for that red that I wanted to put elsewhere to dry." I did not change brushes, acrylic brushes are softer, or fabric, because I continue to use Lino Velázquez with which I achieved as good results as with oil. In recent years I also work on MDF board which allows me small variations in texture due to the support. I also do work on paper, collage and sculptures in wood and recycled materials and I make sculptures with papier-mâché painted with acrylic.

The theme of my work is nature, landscapes and its details. My landscapes represent states of mind. The role of chance and chaos is reflected in my latest works.

Marisu Solís In The Studio

"The palette opens to new ranges that enrich the series of grays and blues with sumptuous and saturated vaguely exotic pinks. All these novelties in turn evoke the different references that help to interpret the work that is now presented, references that range from the powerful gesture of the artists of the Cobra group to the coloristic synthesis of De Staël or the happy intimacy of Bonnard."

More About Marisu Solís

IconInspires

What inspires you?

Any situation and place can inspire me, a certain light, a color, the shape of a stone, a vase or a plate. But also the sound of water, wind, an insect and in the same way the smell of wet earth, a flower, freshly cut grass ... My sources of inspiration are many and varied, but especially nature inspires me.

IconCreative

Describe your creative process.

Normally I start to work without a previous sketch. The first thing I do in front of a blank canvas or paper is to put color and more color into it, vehemently, sometimes also graphics, almost always in black. After a while of painting, it will be the color stain or perhaps a small area of the painting that will tell me how to continue ...

IconMagnifying

What are 3 words that best describe your work?

Color, Graphism, Expression

IconUser

Who are some artists that have influenced your work?

From a very young age I was fascinated by Paul Cézanne. The Fauvists opened a great path for me: Jawlensky, Vlaminck, Derain, Kirchner and also Kandinsky and Matisse. I always liked Picasso for his bravery, later on I was influenced by Esteban Vicente and the American Abstract Expressionists: Joan Mitchell, Robert Motherwell, Willem De Kooning, Jackson Pollock ... I cannot stop mentioning my admiration for Pierre Alechinsky.

IconTool

What is the most important tool when creating your work?

My imagination and my feelings, sometimes in a relaxed way and others with a vehemence.

IconGive

What is the best piece of advice you have been given?

As a young man, with my drawing teachers, I learned that a lot of tenacity, effort and perseverance were necessary. The discipline that I learned then always helped me, I at least need hours in the studio to carry out my work. Over the years it was important for me to "unlearn" and free myself from rigid schemes.

IconLightbulb

Where do you go for inspiration?

My inspiration is found mainly in nature, but whenever I see an exhibition or go to a museum, a spring moves in me that makes me return to the brushes with more desire and determination. I also adore the light of the city, the stillness of an afternoon of reading, car trips enjoying the landscape ...
