Schermafbeelding 2020-11-17 om 15.20.34

Born in Mallorca in 1963, Soler was unknown to me until we visited the FUNDACIO PILAR i JOAN MIRO some decade ago and we encountered within this museum teh paintings by Soler. We learned that some time before they had held an exhibition to show the relation between Soler and Piet Mondrian whose works i know very well from my time at the gemeentemsueum Den Haag. I took an interest in this artis and liked the way he uses color with his absytract compositions. Both use geometric forms and lines , but the differnce there is a stronger sense of 3D.

Solor builds his paintings with layer upon layer, realizing this a way a 3D image. Fascinating to see. The catalogue in which Soler travels the road Mondrian took is available at
