Alicia Lopez, California Member Since December 2010 Artist Statement Welcome,
I hope you find in one of my paintings a piece of peace or a lost memory forgotten somewhere in time. Because to me being an artist is being able to self express yourself, but with the advantages of allowing others to form their own self expression when seeing your inspirations. That’s why when I paint I try to always paint a piece hoping that will allow the viewer a chance to see through my eyes but at the same time to form their own visions, and escape into a seize moment and thought put together in a canvas. That’s why I think my style of painting was and is greatly influence with sceneries from nature, because it allows the eyes to wonder freely and joyfully. So I leave with this thought “see not only with your eyes but with every single sense”.
