Nicola Lopez

A Promising Tomorrow (2004), Nicola Lopez’s (American, b. 1975) room-size installation of screenprints and woodcuts, occupies two walls and part of the ceiling of the gallery. Conveying a cartoon-like, apocalyptic sense of modern urban living and infrastructure, this meandering installation includes over 150 sheets push-pinned to the wall. For this work, Lopez has constructed an exploding environment by layering printed images of radio towers, satellite dishes, tires, and skyscrapers in different colors and orientations.
