The images created by Marta Soul are the result of a long process of exploration on the relationship between the person and the observer. She has been attracted to the visual study of appearances, the assumption of identity roles as the representation of stereotypes and the effect of the passage of time on social emotions. Her images represent an effort to understand what people show to others in a continuously changing environment. Thus, “want” and “get” are two synonyms for “pretend”.
There is also an intention to understand the role assumed by each one in a very complex world, in which the distinction between true and false ceases to make sense. Emotions seem to be labeled “consume before.” The search for some traditionally vital values, such as love, family, honesty, also ceases to make sense in this context, and becomes ephemeral. The characters represented by Marta Soul appear before the world as if they knew that they were nothing more than an image of limited duration, immune to the passage of time, showing the experience of the moment as something truly stimulating.
