  -- Currently, Solis is completing a large-scale and modernized reproduction of Gustave Courbet's Sleepers, which depicts two nude women entwined on a bed. "The painting depicts Julia Friedman, art historian and Courbet scholar, and myself intertwined in bed, an allegory of sorts, the painting represents art and art history in bed together and the complicated relationship between the two," Solis says, adding that the work will be on display in September as a solo exhibition at Jamie Brooks Fine Art in Costa Mesa, California.

Solis' work sheds light on stories that often go unheard. And she refuses to compromise. "My greatest accomplishment is staying true to my unique artistic vision," she says. "I am proud to say that my work is an uncompromisingly honest interpretation of how I experience the world." -- read full interview here
