EDDY A. LOPEZ

Born in Matagalpa, Nicaragua, during the chaos of the Sandinista revolution and raised in the sprawling suburbs of Miami, I am a painter and printmaker whose work clashes the past and present together by running computer algorithms that create heavily layered amalgamations of historical, mythological, political, and religious imagery. Using big data, the Internet and 500-year-old printmaking techniques, I create compositions that compress and transform memories and records of a chaotic world into beautiful and serene abstractions.

It is in these odd juxtapositions that I explore the intricacies of my contemporary experience as an artist; where, in the age of big data, social networks, Photoshop, and the 24-hour news cycle, the burin, ink, and pixel make the most sense.
