Nicola López (b. 1975, Santa Fe, New Mexico) works with printmaking, drawing, and installation to describe and reconfigure our contemporary and increasingly urban landscape. Her sculptural prints and intricate constructions investigate the nature of place and mankind’s complex relation to it. In Landscape X, created as part of the Guggenheim’s ongoing Intervals series, López assembles a site-specific sculptural collage environment on view in three levels of the rotunda. Utilizing elements from the construction site as a point of inception, López employs symbols of urban infrastructure to craft a graphic expanse of forms which boldly expand into the Frank Lloyd Wright space.
