A solo exhibition that encompasses an extensive perspective of work from artist Felipe Lopez. It examines our relationship with the ambiance of water, nature, and how the two collide into memorable landscapes. This exhibition offers a refined retrospective of work over the past 4 years, including a plethora of pieces in various mediums from his Light Bulb Series, Ambiente, Flor, Ambiente Chandelier, and the most recent painting series Space Is Only Noise That You Can See.
The title Ambiente Amore speaks to how one relates to the immediate surroundings, to being completely engulfed in a landscape, and how our interaction with particular parts of water and nature can create a certain reaction or mood. Just as biologists study the effects of ambient light on plants, meteorologists report on ambient pressure, and acoustic experts try to engage yet control ambient sound, Lopez is constructing materials that once assembled, offer encompassing landscapes, a myriad of moods, and a place of reflective space.
Resin, hand tied fishing flies, fishing net, acrylic paint, neon, and more all morph together in collections of pieces that fully encompass their material to fill a viewer’s sight along with evoking particular feelings. The alluring qualities of the work will fill the space of Clarke & Associates, offering reverberated solace, colorful speculation, and alluring emotions. Lopez’s work invites interaction, whether that be physically touching the light bulbs in a sculpture, to emotionally being transported to a famous water landscape.
The exhibition will include experiential multimedia components that will provide an engaging sensory experience to the audience.
