Through her work in installation, drawing and printmaking, Nicola López describes and reconfigures our contemporary, primarily urban, landscape. Her focus on describing ‘place’ stems from an interest in urban planning, architecture and anthropology and it has been fueled by time spent working and traveling in different landscapes. López was born in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. She received her undergraduate degree and an MFA in Visual Arts from Columbia University. She also attended the Skowhegan School of Painting & Sculpture and other residencies. In 2011, López was invited to build an installation in the rotunda of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York. López’s work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally including The Museum of Modern Art (New York, NY), The Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York, NY), Los Angeles County Museum of Art (Los Angeles, CA), the Museo Rufino (Tamayo, Mexico City) and the Denver Art Museum (Denver, CO).
