Combining her beautifully grotesque imagery with wood, acrylic, and a new sculptural form, LIZZEE SOLOMON created an edition of intricate lasercut puzzles. Bright blobs, textured fish, a surreal brain character make up a complicated puzzle that can engage you for hours.
Lizzee Solomon is a Pittsburgh-based artist and designer. She graduated from Carnegie Mellon University in 2011 with a BFA in Studio Art and a minor in Hispanic Studies. She makes paintings, drawings, comics and mixed media sculpture. Lizzee also instructs classes at TechShop Pittsburgh. In 2012, she spent some time learning the art of woodcarving in a small town outside of Oaxaca, Mexico. Since this experience, Lizzee has been fascinated by the texture of wood and its juxtaposition with other materials and textures. Her artwork consists of open-ended narratives, which may incite a visceral reaction from the viewer. Lizzee's aesthetic is bendy, bloated, colorful, and sumptuous. She playfully distorts the subjects in her work, creating a world saturated with beauty and horror.
