Class of 2018


Sol Whiteside’s passion for nature and wildlife became evident from an early age, and ever since has been the basis of his work. In recent years he has been experimenting with a variety of ideas and materials relating to the natural world, particularly delving into the use of light and tone to create a dramatic effect. Sol’s work resides around the idea of exaggerated realism and often has a strong sense of narrative and mystery, attained with a keen attention to detail. He has recently began using a mixture of charcoal, carbon and ink, resulting in poetic images that explore the idea of perspective and space.
