Abstract/Description:
Linking his thematic inspiration (the strange, the bizarre, the weird and the odd) to his artistic reflection, Lopez conceives of his work as based on his fascination with human facial expressions. "It is there where it is born", he says. Like Leonardo, he believes that the eye is the superior organ. Lopez's use of form and color represents his main objective: to show emotion, humanity and elegance. For that, it is necessary for him to reveal character as well as beauty. It is again, the approach used by the great masters such as Leonardo, Velázquez, Géricault and Goya in representing integrity inside the strange, the bizarre, the weird and the odd. Lopez's art invites the viewer to stare at it, to establish a cordial exchange and to venture into the fascinating world of the unusual.
