Caitlyn Soldan has an array of tools in her toolbox to choose from -- she has been known to explore platinum palladium, mordancage, pinhole, cyantype and liquid emulsion. She explores the world around her choosing the best tool for what she is trying to express -- an artist after my own heart. She has proven herself to be not only experienced in such mediums, but she has a well refined sensibility about her work. Whether she is exploring a locale by capturing the spirit of the land as she did in her mordancage series 'Thin Veil's (recently on exhibition at VERVE Gallery), or if she is exploring the unique connection between people and nature in the village of Lacoste, France, she obviously is intrigued by culture, faith and what it means to be spiritual. Just out of undergraduate school less than a year, and this artist has accomplished more in her work during her schooling than most people aspire to in the beginning of their artistic career.
Caitlyn Soldan was born in 1988 in Chicago, Illinois. She grew up in the northwest suburbs of Chicago and moved to Savannah, Georgia after high school to attend Savannah College of Art and Design. She graduated in 2011 with a BFA in photography. Her work is inspired by history, memory and time. Soldan prefers working with film and alternative processes but also enjoys exploring the possibilities of combining historical processes with new technology. Most recently she has been taking pinhole photographs and working with the mordancage process. Her work has been exhibited throughout the Unites States and France. Catie is now living in Santa Fe, New Mexico. View more of Caitlyn Soldan's work on her site catilynsoldan.com.
