Palpitations Painting by Sergio Lopez

view additional image 1
A fetish is a fixation to a particular object to an abnormal degree, or refers to an inanimate object worshipped for its magical powers or because it is considered to be inhabited by a spirit.

How can we as oil painters explore our love about oil painting in a way that is interesting or relevant to people who don't necessarily know our art, or care about art that much in general? 

This is the central problem I explore in Fetish of Form.
I aim to build a narrative to my work that is understated in direct meaning. An interest is built in work that can't be easily decoded in one viewing. Instead of trying to figure them out, I just let them be what they are. 

All the best painters have an awe-inspiration in their work. They also have some quality of mystery in their work not only in the pictures themselves, but how they created that picture. In order for me to keep engaged with my own work, there are parts of the process that need to stay impenetrable. Being comfortable with that is an important part of the process itself.

The more paintings I look at, the more I'm interested in the ones that leave a lot for the viewer to figure out. In these abstracted figures, I am purposely creating by what seems like a happy accident. But it's not really an accident. It's more like, an indirect method of painting directly.

I used to think that it was of utmost important to have full control of the medium. As I've gotten more and more confident not only in life but with oil paint, the visual mystery that results in letting go of some control becomes more interesting to me.

Sergio Lopez, born in 1983, is a graduate of the Academy of Art in San Francisco – and is an exemplary painter in a variety of mediums. His artistic knowledge ballooned when he discovered his love of oil painting and charcoal drawing. He filled sketchbook after sketchbook with observations from life as well as drawings from his imagination. The Golden Age illustrators, Bravura painters, contemporary artists, concept designers, graffiti writers, and photographers have been some of his strongest influences in his pursuit of painting. He continues to study by visiting museums and observing the Great Masters, which he strives to learn lessons of beauty from. His paintings of female nudes are unique and arresting. They have been soaring in popularity since they first began appearing in publications such as Juxtapoz, Hi-Fructose, Spectrum, Bluecanvas, and more online publications than are fit to list here. He has even been selected twice as a finalist for the Art Renewal Center’s prestigious yearly Salon. www.themainloop.com themainloop.blogspot.com www.facebook.com/SergioLopezFineArt bluecanvas.com/themainloop http://bit.ly/sergiolZatistaStore
