Opening Exhibit


Built vs. Nature by Julia Lopez:

"My work is focused and revolved around abstract, architectural photography with an integration of nature as appropriate. For this proposed show, I would want to demonstrate the relationship between the built environment and nature. My artwork specifically seeks to bring viewers into the abstraction through color contrast, multiple exposures, and a painterly effect. Additionally, the use of the Saint Louis City as the foundational basis for this interpretation is particularly intriguing due to the amount of history and decomposition which surrounds us. The artwork seeks to speak to the living and the forgotten environments."
