Remixes is a solo exhibition by artist and educator, Eddy López. As a fellow artist, what I find most intriguing about this collection of works is a personal connection to traditional processes layered within the context of ‘new’ methodologies. The first consumer-based computers have been around since the early 1970’s, or before he or I was even born. This challenges the notion of technique and mastery of an artist’s tools and materials. This exhibition brings interdisciplinary examples of printmaking to the forefront, as well, with math, language, and the visual arts.
"In these juxtapositions, I explore the intricacies of my contemporary experience as an artist; where, in the age of big data, social networks, Photoshop, and the 24-hour news cycle, the burin, ink, and pixel make the most sense” states Eddy López about this exhibition. He will be a Guest Artist working with our upper level painting students in the Dept of Art & Design and presenting artist talks for the Dept of Foreign Studies on the AU campus.
