Marian Lopez




''... Marian nació en la histórica villa de Monzón de Campos, en 1.964, por ello desde niña se ha sentido atraída por los colores tostados de los trigos de Castilla. Enamorada de su tierra y de su entorno empezó en el mundo de la pintura en el año 1.982, pintó su primer óleo de estilo realista en 1.983.
En los últimos años ha visitado mucho el norte de Palencia, quedando prendada de su fresco estilo con los agrestes grises de las rocas de la montaña palentina, y los verdes primavera de su vegetación, la naturalidad de su paisaje y de sus gentes, el reflejo del cielo en el agua de sus pantanos y una brisa de montaña la enamoraron.

Su estilo de pintura es un claro y transparente realismo de estilo capeliano, pero también se siente muy atraída por el impresionismo, habiendo ya pintado algún cuadro en este estilo.

El 24 de septiembre de 2008 tuvo lugar la entrega de premios de la XXX Edición de los Premios Ejército del Aire.

El primer premio fue para el militar Manuel Jiménez Sánchez con su pintura a la acuarela titulada "Esa vieja estampa", premio que recibió de manos de la presidenta de la Comunidad de Madrid, Esperanza Aguirre.

El segundo premio recayó en la palentina Marian López Aguado con su obra titulada "Aviocar", en la cual representa un viejo avión de mercancías modelado por un juego de luces y contrastes juntno con una sabia utilización de las texturas y materias pictóricas. ...''


















Luz-Maria Lopez



Luz-Maria Lopez was born in Honduras, Central America in 1944. After coming to the United States in 1964 to study, Lopez spent many years in the workforce. In 1995, fulfilling a lifelong dream, Lopez received her Bachelor of Arts degree, Magna Cum Laude, from Southeastern Louisiana University in Hammond, Louisiana.
Inspired by Mayan ancestry and the memories of childhood stories told to her by her grandmother, Luz Maria Lopez paints from a colorful, mythological world.

Lopez paints women with big feet and large toes to symbolize a woman's strength; stars to represent the nights of her youth; the heart to represent "love and sorrow, life and death, hope and resurrection".

Among the exhibitions Lopez has had her work shown at are: the Le Mieux Galleries, New Orleans, LA; Thomas V. Robinson Galleries, Houston, TX; The Latin America Art Exhibition: Masters of the Imagination Agora Gallery, New York, NY; Art for Healing Gala Memorial Health Care System, Chattanooga, TN and Arty Gras Warehouse District, Washington, D. C.

Lopez has been awarded the Louisiana Division of the Arts Artist Fellowship as well as the Liquitex Excellence in Art Grant and Lopez garnered the First Prize in the Frida Khalo International Portraits competition. Numerous individuals and corporations collect her work.





''My work is like windows to my past. My maternal grandmother was a great storyteller. She inspired me with her stories, told to me on all those starry nights in Honduras. In my child's mind I imagined beautiful things, and felt the wonder of them. My goal as an artist has been to inspire the viewer in the same way. I honor my grandmother by painting icons depicting strong, beautiful women like she was, and I continue to put stars in my works in her honor; it's how I remember her. My paintings have also been influenced by Latin American traditions and the Native cultures of the Americas.

I work with acrylics, and I have recently been experimenting with oils. The women I paint are not anyone in particular, they just come out of the canvas, and when they are done, I am pleased to meet them. The religious pictures I saw on my grandmother's altar influenced my iconic style.''
