Angela Lopez

Angela Lopez is an interdisciplinary artist based in Chicago. Her watercolor paintings, videos and sculptures investigate the human condition through the corporeal, making works that reveal primal instincts, desires and fears. She uses traditionally tranquil mediums and techniques, such as watercolor painting, to create surfaces that are slippery, gooey, fleshy, and always in flux. They move between various states of metamorphosis, exploring the familiar and the unknown of embodiment. She has exhibited her work in solo exhibitions across the Midwest including at Charlotte Street Foundation (KS) and Demo Projects (IL). In addition she has taken part many group exhibitions, including the Mary & Leigh Block Museum of Art (MO), Hyde Park Art Center (IL), and Centro de Produccion y Edicion Grafica de Buenos Aires in Argentina. She was recently awarded an Individual Artist Program Cultural Grant from the city of Chicago, and received a full scholarship to participate in the Center Program at Hyde Park Art Center, Chicago.
