Sol is also author of the Beginner's Luke Series of seriocomic novels that hilariously foreground the role of imagination in creating our individual and collective reality.
Characterized by Reader Views as a 'modern-day Alice in Wonderland' and by Apex Reviews as a 'mind-bending journey through the mind of the ultimate iconoclast,' Beginner's Luke is also, as literature professor Niama Williams has written, a 'spiritual journey that you do not want to put down.'
Luke's signature obsessions with self, sex, satire and slapdash highlight a serious, and life-changing, point: consciousness creates. The point is there is a point to living in the imagination—for only through it can we reinvent our ourselves and our world.
In Sol's expressionistic paintings, he is committed to exploring and depicting energy—specifically, that engrossing spiral of universal creative energy that is consciousness. His vision of the world is deeply shamanic, as a place not wholly solid, but informed by a kinetic vibrancy that is fundamentally intelligent.
His intention is for viewers to see this universe of energy in his paintings—as objects condition space with their essence, and vice versa, and the outside conflates with the inside because All Is One.
