Fernando López Lage
Fernando López Lage was born in 1964 in Montevideo, Uruguay, where he lives and works.
The Uruguayan artist is one of the most prominent representatives of contemporary painting on the national scene.
“López Lage highlights the irregularity, underlines the very rich and diverse formal games in each of the spaces, privileges the syncopated rhythms and highlights a geometry in which the gesture of the hand and the brush always plays: the artist’s mark is noticeable, the matter and texture are present, that makes his work so dense and distances it from any coldness. The color is what gives entity to his painting, it plays the role of drawing, perspective, shadow, volume and is always ready to impose itself on the material. The pleasure of painting in large format and intense colors is essential for López Lage.”
