In his current Reflections series, Andres Lopez takes time to study everyday occurrences around his home in Miami, Florida. It's in these moments that he is able to capture a compelling, alternate view of our world. He says his intention with this painting was to capture the serenity, peace and natural harmony of the pond. Yellow, orange and red lily pads rest on the water, accompanied by ripples along the surface. Behind, trees, plants and grass stand along the bank. A view of two separate but interconnected environments.
Andres Lopez was born in the old Cuban town of Santa Clara. As a child, he developed a deep love for the beauty of the countryside and the exquisite architecture of his hometown. He participated in drawing contests at the tender age of nine where landscapes were always his favorite theme. In his early twenties, Andres made his way to Florida, bringing only his worn-out brushes and a great dream. Immediately captivated by the beauty of the Everglades, his works display the close relationship between humanity and the natural world around us.
