Felipe Lopez is a Houston-based artist who has shown work at numerous galleries and institutions, including the MFAH, CAMH, Houston Arts Alliance, Art Institute of Houston, and the KCAM. Born in the Bronx, NY, Lopez relocated to Houston at a young age. His recent compositions use light bulbs filled with resin (a synthetic material) and handmade fly-fishing lures, symbolic of the artist’s personal connection with fishing, water resources, and the environment.

Originally from Taipei, Taiwan, she has made her mark in Houston through stunning freestanding sculptures using tree bark, roots, metals, rope and resin. Her work highlights her dual cultures and the concept of “home” by calling attention to universal and spiritual ideas.
