Nicola Lopez was born in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and currently lives in Brooklyn, NY. Her work expands the boundaries of traditional uses of paper media often moving drawing and various printmaking processes into sculptural installations. Her imagery deals with architectural structures and brings to mind ideas about construction and destruction, growth and decay. Lopez received her BA and MFA at Columbia University and has participated in residencies at the Skowhegan School for Painting and Sculpture, the Headlands Center for the Arts and at La Curtiduria in Oaxaca, Mexico. Her work has been exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and the Denver Art Museum. Recently, Lopez’s work was shown in a solo exhibition at Pace Prints and at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York.
