About the Artwork:

“Most of my inspiration derives from my fascination with life, death and the quiet and sometimes, not so quiet motivation that exists in my daily life indicative of my own mortality. While we may not be conscious of it, this force is ultimately what drives many artists to create and work towards achieving something of significance in our lifetime. The spectrum of one’s birth, evolution and withering away brings endless stories and images to light. Some of my ideas are reminiscent of past experiences, some from my experience administering anesthesia and working with hospice patients, others are a tribute to the vanitas movement and the unfortunate transitory value of humans as they age. The work is intended to create a consciousness of time. The usual suspects include skulls, hands, crows, botanical elements as well as occult imagery. Anatomy, and more specifically, hands have embedded themselves into my work as self-portraits detailing their structural transformation through time.” – Lizz Lopez

About the Artist:

(Artist Bio)

Lizz Lopez is a fine artist working primarily in graphite. She has a lengthy art history with a background in photography, sculpture, classical oil painting, graphic and movie picture design. Her work centers on death and is represented symbolically and allegorically via images of lady reapers, hands, and the macabre. Having been raised the daughter of a Baptist minister in Texas, much of her work demonstrates nuances of religion but extends into metaphysics and spiritual ideas ranging from Christianity to the occult. She has studied anatomy extensively through her education in science and anesthesia as well as formally in art school. She combines a meditative practice that incorporates magick and ritual with the intent of assembling each drawing as a spiritual invocation as well as a gentle admonition to the spectator reminding them of the transience of life. By inciting the imminent communal experience of death, she delivers a message of fragility and awareness of mortality. Her work concentrates on representing the morbid in an enticing sensual nature through the feminization of death further revealing it as an esoteric and delicate seductive form.
