Martina Lopez // 1952-Present

Photographer and Digital Artist


Martina Lopez is a second-generation Mexican American artistborn in Seattle, Washington in 1952. She was raised with American customs andtraditional Hispanic family values. She says she has a strong connection to family, which shows through much of her work. Lopez began to study photography at the University of Washing in 1986, which is where she began to make computer images. In 1987, she moved to Chicago to attend The School of The Art Institute of Chicago.

Lopez began to make digitized photographs after the death of her father in 1986. As a child, she had often heard stories and seen photographs of her oldest brother, who was killed in Vietnam when Lopez was only four. She realized that her memories didn’t always line up with family photographs and began to wonder if she could figure out who her father and brother were by recreating her memories of the past.

In her work, Lopez uses photographs found in thrift stores and photos from family albums. She places them on landscapes she has created from photographs using digital technology. The landscapes often act as a metaphor for a person’s life, and Lopez continuously takes photographs of clouds and landscapes in order to have a stock of images. Once Lopez has successfully finished a collage, she sends it off to a photography lab to make a 4x5 transparency of it. She then makes large-scale photographic prints form this transparency.
