Soliana is an interdisciplinary artist who uses sculpture, photography video, sound, and projection. She studied English Literature at Harvard University, photography at Parsons Paris and received an MA with honors in Image and Communications from Goldsmiths. Soliana has had solo shows in London and Milan and has participated in group shows in LA, NYC, and London. Her work is concerned with corporeality and the physicality of her own body as well as that of the world and of her sculptures. She usually makes colored shapes out of resin or combines it with materials like wood, plexiglass, metal, or canvas. She has developed a very physical process to create visual motion in static pieces by pouring liquid plastic onto an inclined surface and allowing it to flow continuously until it hardens and freezes. Soliana’s work is dependent on harnessing chance, and leaving an element of each piece open to the unexpected.
