One of a series of large-scale monoprints created in 2011. López, who is by training a printmaker, uses the language of printmaking to create an exploration of the human-constructed world (especially urban-industrial landscape) as a dynamic system that is simultaneously terrifying in its vertiginous speed/growth/glut/unsustainability and awesomely magnificent in its richness and tremendous possibility.

“Structural Detours presents a more abstract and intuitive exploration of this theme in which familiar images become the building blocks for more formal compositions…in which each object is distanced from its original use. Maybe this distance is evidence of systemic breakdown? Maybe evidence of a re-prioritization of aesthetic- over use-value that I think is largely characteristic of our culture today? Maybe it is just evidence of my fascination with the visual beauty/possibility in this world—as reflected not only through the imagery but also the choice of materials on which the images are printed.”
