Angel Lopez’s solo exhibition, “Different Media Y Un Solo Corazón (and One Solitary Heart),” at the Creative Arts Center Gallery in Burbank captures the vision of an artist rooted in his Latino heritage expressing himself fluidly in global media.
With a generous collection pleasing in its versatility — the exhibition encompasses works in 10 different media — Lopez pays homage to notable artists of 20th-century Hispanic culture while conjuring a personal statement.
Lopez, who lived and was educated in Guadalajara, Mexico, came to the United States later in his career to study printmaking and ceramics at Pasadena City College. He insists that, as a mature artist, he does not consciously try to emulate anyone else’s work. But subtle stylistic influences are undeniable.
