Esther Solondz grew up in New Jersey, receiving a BA from Clark University in 1975 and an MFA in photography from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1980. She also pursued graduate work in film at New York University. Solondz’ artistic life has been an evolution through many different materials. Beginning with photography and film, she moved to painting and then sculpture and installations. Over the last twelve years Solondz has gravitated to an exploration of the transformative processes that simple materials such as salt and rust undergo. She has taught at RISD and exhibited extensively throughout New England.
