Kiko Lopez is one of the few artisans working today in the traditional craft of hand-silvering. This large mirror exhibits his mastery of the near-forgotten practise, as well as Lopez’s dedication to employing these age old methods to create singular and innovative works of art.
Of his mirrors, 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."
This is one of a trio of pieces created as an homage to the magical mirror in Jean Cocteau's 1946 film masterpiece "La Belle et La Bête" (Beauty and the Beast).
