Notes on the Tower: Nicola López

September 7–December 21, 2012

Nicola López returns to Tamarind to produce a new series of lithographs that cast the story of Babel in a contemporary light. The lithographs are the building blocks, which will be woven into an immersive environment in Tamarind’s gallery, for her “power towers.” In her recent work, López, a native of Santa Fe who now lives in Brooklyn, New York, portrays urban landscapes that “struggle against themselves, that strive towards order and beauty as they verge on the edge of spinning beyond control or comprehension.”
