ClampArt is pleased to announce “Rafael Soldi: Life Stand Still Here,” the artist’s first solo show in New York City.

About

“Life Stand Still Here” explores internal dialogues and moments when life and its darkest facets can offer monumental symbolism. Inspired by the writings of Virginia Woolf, this body of work explores the elusive abstract space within all of us that defines the core of our psyches. Soldi examines the ambiguous and sometimes painful inner darkness in all people. The artist’s interest is in opening an interplay between the histories of his audience members and his own—a kind of dark mirroring that makes visible our shared psychic struggles.

Soldi comments: “When people [close to you] die or you go through losses or traumatic experiences, they unlock these very dark corners of your psyche, not darkness that is perverse, but darkness that is unknown. . . It makes you wonder, ‘What else is in there?’”

Conor Risch observes in a article written for PDN: “Though the work is linked to experiences from Soldi’s life—childhood memories, recurring dreams, relation-ships—he references these indirectly, questioning how what happens to us shifts our understanding of the world.”
