i’m jealous of xochi solis

Yum. These are the layered, colorful, beautifully composed mixed media paintings of Austin based artist Xochi Solis.

Ok, I have been sitting here for about twenty minutes trying to figure out a way to say that they remind me the most beautiful, artsy, inner-workings… of sandwiches. How do I say that without totally offending Xochi! It’s meant as a compliment… I love sandwiches. And I love this work, especially when you see it in place, applied directly to a wall!!!

Yep, gorgeously delicious!

    Haha sandwiches are what I thought of also! Especially the first one (I see lettuce, cheese, ham and tomato) . These are beautiful though.

    First thing that came to my mind were ‘hamburgers deluxe’ and I love them. Jealous together with you.

    I am so happy about this! She’s going to have an exhibition at Lawndale Art Center, where I work, in Houston opening January 25. This is the first time you’ve been jealous of a Lawndale artist (that I know of), which is so exciting for me as I’ve loved this blog for quite some time. Yay! I’m telling everybody!

    These are great, but I also thought of sandwiches! We’re all hungry. :)

    Is it wrong that they remind me not of sandwiches, but oysters??
