KRONFLE-CHAMBERS, Rodolfo. The recovery of Eduardo Solá Franco: the most contemporary of the modern. Índex [online]. 2018, n.5, pp.38-53. ISSN 2477-9199.

The work of Eduardo Solá Franco (1915-1996) does not fit into any of the common narratives that characterize Latin American art of the modern period. His was a very personal project of enigmatic narrative figurative art, eclectic and fluctuating in style, wherein an autobiographical impulse symbolically inscribes the most important episodes and concerns of his life. Through a bizarre and dramatized pastiche of religious, historical, mythological, literary and costumbrista themes, the author reinterpreted tradition, using artistic conventions to mask his experiences and affective relationships, while exploring conflicts derived from his sexual identity and spiritual search. His oeuvre, including his experimental films, overflows the modern paradigm and appears in close dialogue with contemporary art trends that, through appropriation and micro-narratives, explore elements of difference and the representation of dissident sexualities.

Palabras clave : latin-american art; sexuality; appropriation; figuration; painting; queer; camp; symbolism; film.
