Acrylics & Holographic Papers on Wood Panel
41" x 21" 1.5"
Carl Lopes received his BFA from University of MA, Amherst, and his MFA at Pratt Institute. Lopes' paintings are a respectful nod to centuries of influential African design and tradition. Colors, patterns and compositions pay tribute to ancestral heritages and cultures, yet maintain a direct contemporary vibe. Masks, portraits, birds and fish are embellished with geometric motifs and designs that visually pop. Airbrushed acrylics, holographic papers, glass beads and jewelry are attached to wood panels and coated with high glass poly-resin. The paintings appear as if they are stained glass, and lit from behind. The intentional stunning appearances leave viewers amazed and intrigued.
This item will continue at the Live Auction at the Museum on the evening of August 18, 2018.
