M. Soledad Chadwick began her artistic studies in 1980, at the Institute of Contemporary Art, taking painting and drawing courses, including among her teachers Jorge Tacla, Gonzalo Díaz and Eduardo Garreaud. Later she entered the Bachelor of Arts program at the University of Chile, where her major was painting and from which she graduated with maximum distinction.
Later, for family reasons she had to dedicate a few years to study business administration, completing a Master of Sciences in Engineering at the Pontifical Catholic University of Chile. Picking up the thread of her artistic work in the late 90s, she entered the Master of Visual Arts program at the University of Chile, where she reassessed her artistic work and began working on sculpture and installations.
During her career she has had several solo exhibitions and other group exhibitions of painting, sculpture and installations. Within the field of urban sculpture, she participates in the Costanera Norte competition (2003) and was awarded one of the prizes, placing her sculpture (aluminium cast mounted on acrylic) on the Padre Letelier bridge as part of the Sculpture Park of the Borough of Providencia. Later she participated in the International Symposium on Concrete Sculpture (2006) and installs her piece at Ciudad Empresarial.
Her childhood and adolescence, always surrounded by nature both in the country as well as the seaside, has had a strong influence in her subject matter: lights and shadows of the foliage of trees, rocks and man-made architectures eroded by the passing of time, coral beds re-created in large format. A vision of nature where silence and solitude speak of the process, of the passing of time or of the enigma of a place that once was but is no longer.
The use of certain industrial materials in sculpture, such as concrete, and the analytical focus of her proposal and work, are also influenced by her university education in the sciences, as an Industrial Civil Engineer.
In 2009 she wins the ACHS Sculpture Contest where she is granted with the prize of locating one of her sculptures in front of the new ACHS Building in Viña del Mar.
