Linda Nguyen Lopez is a ceramic artist that creates really unique and intriguing sculptures. Lopez has exhibited her work in New Zealand and throughout the United States.
She has been an artist in resident at The Clay Studio in Philadelphia and the Archie Bray Foundation. In 2015, Lopez was included in the Scripps Ceramics Annual at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art.
The idea of Linda is that any objetct that inhabits our lives is inanimate. By considering the objects’ needs, and denying our needs for those objects, they can expose a life and language of their own. For example: A stack of books hidden by a blanket of dust waits patiently to fulfill its purpose. By carefully observing the relationships between the things around us, she has found them to reveal their physical and psychological states that often go unnoticed. In this realm, objects are personified, perception is ever changing, and things become their true self.
She works with both 2 dimensional and 3D objects.”Working with two- and three-dimensional forms is a symbiotic process between the dimensions, where my drawings inform my sculptures and my sculptures inform my drawings.”
The sculptures begin with sketches, where the two-dimensional forms always appear as an object represented by a blank square.
