Kiko Lopez is one of the few artisans today using generations-old glass-making techniques, such as the special application of silver in glass. This large mirror exhibits his mastery of these near-forgotten practises—Lopez’s particular dedication to employing age old methods to create singular and innovative works of art.
Of the series, Lopez says, "I’m interested in the tension between empty and full, object and space. Dark areas usually represent empty space and light areas the object, but in these works, they are ambiguous. Lighter areas may be monoliths or passages, darker areas doors or background. I’m fascinated by the way reflections move with the light in constantly changing, mirrored dimensions."
