'I have been working diligently for months on paintings for a show that I consider one to be of the most important shows in my career yet. I will be showing alongside Mia Bergeron for a two-person figurative show in Charleston at the Robert Lange Studios gallery. Mia Bergeron is one of my favorite portrait painters out there right now, so to be able to show alongside her (and maybe steal some of her clientele ;) ) is such a huge deal to me...

Sergio Lopez's 'Painted Roses' series overlays damask floral prints onto the female body, itself often doubled and overlaid in multiple exposures upon itself. The results are a lovely delicate take on the traditional female nude. Lopez, born in 1983, is a graduate of the Academy of Art in San Francisco. The Golden Age illustrators, Bravura painters, contemporary artists, concept designers, graffiti writers, and photographers have been some of his strongest influences in his pursuit of painting. He continues to study by visiting museums and observing the Great Masters, which he strives to learn lessons of beauty from.

Sergio Lopez, born in 1983, is a graduate of the Academy of Art in San Francisco. His series entitled "Painted Roses" is a glorious look into the intersection of female and floral form, melding figurative painting with textiles and still life. The pattern of the roses creates an almost fractal oil-on-water effect as it bleeds into the languishing figures of his women. Lopez applies his traditional knowledge of painting outdoors to his conceptual work, creating sensual masterpieces that express the more explicit essence of a rose.

When we were looking back at some of our more popular posts from 2011, we came across a post we did on Sergio Lopoez' Painted Roses series at Modern Eden Gallery in San Francisco this past May. The work featured nudes, floral tattoo work, all in oil and gouache works on paper, linen, and canvas.
