Nano Lopez

I recently went to Louisville to see the artist Peter Max give a presentation and perhaps buy a piece of his work. When I arrived I found out he was there the day before and I didn’t know about the change. Turned out I was going to see Nano Lopez. I’d never heard of him but his work and his presentation drew me in…

What I learned when I saw Nano’s presentation and sculpture:

1. bronze is very, very, very heavy

2. his art has so many layers of objects and textures that it draws you in (textures and objeccts from nature to trinkets from WalMart)

3. the story behind a piece add interest and wonder (like the cauliflower that was used to make the sheep)4. creating bronze sculptures is a long, complex, and laborious process

5. I don’t think I will ever be casting bronze

6. I really wanted to buy the winged horse (Hint Hint Santa)
