Artist Xochi Solis gives us a behind-the-scenes look at her process in her Austin, Texas studio. Xochi’s works were exhibited alongside works by Leigh Wells and Katrine Hildebrandt-Hussey at the Affordable Art Fair, New York in March 2016.

“Color, shape, texture, and repeat. This is the endless cycle of questions and answers that occurs behind each composition. Small or large in size, the song remains the same.”
“Recently, I have found myself increasingly drawn to creating illusionary surfaces by melding my painterly marks with images and paper surfaces that mimic the same gestures or directional contours.”
“I am often asked if I ever tire of repeating the same round oval-shaped structure of my work. To me, it is like asking if I will ever tire of the shape of the moon or people’s faces.”
