She leaves just enough line to hold the drawing together, which then bursts into a sea of color. Her works are bold, honest and beautifully unapologetic. They have a wonderful throwback quality to the fashion masters of the 60's with a touch of RenĂ© Gruau.

                  XOCHI SOLIS 
                       Based in Austin TX 




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. During the summer of 2018, she was an invited artist of Object Limited to participate in a pilot residency program in Bisbee, AZ. In 2016, she was artist-in-residence at Pele Prints in St. Louis, MO, completing a series of monoprints that combined her painting and collage methods with a variety of printmaking techniques. Continuing to explore these printmaking techniques, she has collaborated on two editions with Shoestring Press in Brooklyn, NY in 2017 and 2018. Solis is one of 30 artists featured in the book Collage: Contemporary Artists Hunt and Gather, Cut and Paste, Mash Up and Transform (Chronicle Books, 2014) and one of 45 featured artists in the recent publication A BIG IMPORTANT ART BOOK (NOW WITH WOMEN): Profiles of Unstoppable Female Artists--and Projects to Help You Become One (Running Press, 2018).
