Works by printmaker Eddy López utilize big data, averaging algorithms, and 500-year-old printmaking techniques to create compositions that attempt to find the beauty in chaos in his exhibit, “Eddy López: Remixes,” at the Lycoming College Art Gallery from July 6 – Sept. 8. A reception will be held Sept. 7, from 6 – 7:30 p.m. with a talk by the artist at 5:30 p.m. The reception and exhibit are free and open to the public.
López layers wide-scale collages to merge historical, mythological, political and religious imagery into abstract compositions of vibrant colors, patterns, and shapes. According to López, his work explores the intricacies of his contemporary experience as an artist in the age of big data, social networks, Photoshop, and the 24-hour news cycle.
López’s artwork has been exhibited both nationally and internationally in group and solo exhibitions. His compositions can be found in the collections of the Frost Art Museum, the Jaffe Center for Book Arts, the Zuckerman Museum of Art, the Universidad de Caldas, and El Minia University, Cairo.
He received a Master of Fine Arts in printmaking from the University of Miami, and is currently an assistant professor of art at Bucknell University, where he teaches printmaking and graphic design.
