Artists who work at the intersection of fine art and craft, using heavy and/or industrial materials to create their work, are often anomalies to other creators firmly fixed on either art or craft. There’s just something impossibly mystical about the ability to tease meaningful form out of cold and formless materials. Artist Ana M. Lopez, who is based in North Texas and works primarily with metal, is just this type of creator. In a new exhibit entitled “Industrial Arts,” Lopez focuses on “the idea of metal as skin and the relationship of the physicality of the piece to the corporeality of the maker.” The exhibit asks (and maybe answers) a loaded question: “If our physical selves influence the objects we produce, what sort of objects does an altered body create; a body that takes prescription drugs, wears glasses, interacts with others through machines?”
