Statement

Raisa Solis (she/her) is a Filipino-American multidisciplinary artist who works in mixed media, film photography, sculpture, installation and floral design from San Francisco, California, United States. Her work explores her personal dynamic between immigration, home, trauma, mental illness and femininity. She received her BA in Studio Art from San Francisco State University in 2020. Her practice serves as a way to break traditional Filipinx cultural norms and decolonize the values she was raised with. In turn, creating visibility and encouraging others within her community to create work and share experiences not only as Filipinx-Americans but also as Asian Americans. Her practice also reviews traumatic experiences as an Asian American woman through her own gaze and the male gaze.
