Big Hook, Small Tank
Through the KCAM, Local artist Felipe Lopez has created a large scale instillation encompassing the artistic statement made in his recent Hook series. This structure made of steel, plexi-glass, hand crafted wood, concrete, and live fish (a first for the Houston Fine Art Fair!) Big Hook, Small Tank will be cast into the fair amidst the multitude of booths.
Combining the fishing tradition of the artist’s Cuban heritage and merging it with psychology including the idea of people as lures, Lopez shows the skilled balance and beautiful construction of oversized hooks and lures submerged in his Hook series. The oversized hook in this piece symbolizes man’s desire to always have a large and substantial catch in life regardless of where the hook is placed. The wooden hook symbolizes the historical aspect of fishing hooks and lures that were handmade as an art form.
