Soledad Salamé, American, born in Santiago, Chile in 1954, currently lives and works in Baltimore, Maryland.
From 1973 to 1983 Salamé lived
in Venezuela. At this time she was exposed to the rainforest, a pivotal
experience in her artistic development which continues to be a source
of inspiration. As an interdisciplinary artist Salamé creates
work that originates from extensive research of specific topics.

the Americas, Europe and Antarctica.
