Angela Lopez’s watercolor paintings, animations and sculptures explore the familiar and the unknown of embodiment. Her work gives tangible form to the primal animal instincts, deep rooted desires and crystalline fears that drive human behavior. Lopez subverts traditional media, rendering it sweetly uncanny. In Lopez’s work, our bodies and humanity are presented as unknowable, yet inescapable, forces in our lives. Lopezangela.com
