About the Event

Osceola Arts presents Ancestral Memory: Works by Edmundo Lopez will be exhibited in the Community Gallery from September 6 through November 3. A free meet-the-artist reception will be held on Saturday, September 16 from 2pm to 5pm.

Central Florida artist Edmundo Lopez is a sculptor known for his ceramic and mixed media artworks. His sculptures are groupings of diverse forms, including plants, animals, fish, and stylized human figures. These elements come together to create intricate and visually captivating compositions.

Lopez's artistic style is influenced by his Caribbean heritage. The region's multiracial culture, which blends African and Caucasian influences, plays a significant role in shaping his imagery. Additionally, folklore beliefs from this region inform certain aspects of his work, adding a sense of cultural richness and storytelling.

However, it is the implied narratives within Lopez's sculptures that often take center stage. His artworks frequently suggest socio-political critiques, offering commentary on various aspects of society. These narratives may explore issues such as power dynamics, inequality, identity, or social justice.

By combining elements of nature, human figures, and symbolic imagery, Lopez creates visually striking sculptures that invite viewers to contemplate the complex relationships between individuals, cultures, and social structures. His work serves as a platform for dialogue and reflection on important societal issues, challenging viewers to consider the deeper meanings and messages conveyed through his art.

Mr. Lopez has exhibited his works at the Polasek Museum and Sculpture Gardens, Osceola Arts, The Bronx Museum of Art and The Lake Mary Museum Museum.
