Bio: Megan Solis’ (b. 1990, San Antonio, TX) work splinters and bleeds into drawing, sculpture, video, and performance. Postpartum from obtaining her MFA at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), Solis has authored and birthed her own heroine, Glory West, a love-sick blonde Texan, who navigates themes of desperation and loneliness creating concerts of unrequited lust, precarious displays of confidence and self-conscious portraits of love for her fans. Glory West’s odyssey encapsulates a monstrous feminine mystique, holding tightly to self-inflicted hysteria and hapless horror. Solis has participated in the residency programs of Hello Studio Gallery (San, Antonio, TX) and Arteles (Haukijärvi, Finland). She has exhibited her work throughout Texas such as at the Mexic-Arte Museum (Austin, TX), Invisible Gallery, (Houston, TX), and the McNay Art Museum (San Antonio, TX). Solis has also shown nationally and internationally including the Freedman Gallery in Reading, PA, and the CICA Museum in South Korea. Most recently, she was invited to perform at Sweet Pass Sculpture Park in Dallas, TX, and Más Allá Gallery in Bogotá, Colombia.

Composed with the classic ingredients of a love story, Glory West’s odyssey has deformed into a perverted psychological horror. We see her in this self-produced imaginative nightmarish documentary her trying to host a BBQ in Converse, Texas, she manically takes her new friend to the lake where she uncovers many skeletons and
