ABOUT FELIPE LOPEZ AND THE HOOK SERIES:
Afro-Cuban Artist, Felipe Lopez is honored to have his work from the Hook series selected for this prestigious exhibition presented by the Museum of Fine Arts Houston. Combing the fishing traditions of his Cuban heritage and thoughtfully merging it with psychology, Lopez shows the delicate balance and beautiful construction of oversized fly hooks and lures submerged through sculpture and painting. Ideals such as the use of people as lures, the melding of personal past and future, along with the waves and catches of major life events all vividly line the concept of the work featured in this show and beyond. The breath of detail and innovative craftsmanship play out in both his handmade lures and painting selected for this yearly exhibition.
