Description

Contemporary Brooklyn-based artist Nicola López explores the concept of place in her work, inspired by a longstanding interest in anthropology. This print belongs to López’s Monuments series, in which she created abstract images based on the urban landscape. Objects from everyday life—here, a satellite dish—are presented in forms and settings that monumentalize them beyond their regular use.
