Nuit Blanches | Oil, resin, tar on panels | 60”H x 70”W (diptych)
Lopez has continually used many different materials and processes when creating color texture and surfaces in his artwork. Lots of activity occurs with the paint surface on panel or canvas until its completion. Overlays of metal and stone dust mixed into the paint are a few examples. A wide variety of varied thoughts and emotions shape the outcome of the work. The joining together of panels that are sometimes unrelated to make one piece has been a theme in his recent work.

Barn 24 | Roofing tar and varnish on white masonite panel with acrylic sealer | 2′ x 2′
Barn 24 is one of the early pieces which led to White Gold, a large touring museum exhibition which began at CAM Raleigh. The Barn series depicts rural structures and, more broadly, the haunted ambiguous beauty of our southern landscape. Barns loom over our fields like sentinels, letting light in and out of cracking, sagging, wooden boards. These works live somewhere between hand and mind, between chance and control, beauty and tragedy … somewhere between dirt and sky.
