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. "After the rain the streets become mirrored to reflect the houses and buildings, and revealed the splendor of this old yellow tower," says Andres. In this painting, the puddle in the street acts as a window to another world. The orientation of the composition heightens the effect, letting the imagination wander to different times and places.
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.
