About the Artist

Xochi solis

Xochi Solis (b. 1981) is an Austin, TX based artist sharing her studio time between Texas and Mexico. Her works include multilayered, collaged paintings constructed of paint, hand-dyed paper, vinyl, plastics, and images from found books and magazines. Solis considers the repeated act of layering a meditation on color, texture, and shape all leading to a greater awareness of the visual intricacies found in her immediate environment, both natural and cultural. In 2016, she was the invited artist-in-residence at Pele Prints in St. Louis, MO, Solis completing a series of monoprints that combined her painting and collage methods with a variety of printmaking techniques.
