Amanda Lopez’s well received CaliLOVE show at Upper Playground, Sacramento finally makes it’s SF debut at Free Gold Watch next Friday, June 18th! This show has been a long time coming for the Sacramento-based resident who calls San Francisco her “home away from home.”
Amanda, who believes La Virgen de Guadalupe has guided her well, has shot 5 new portraits for the SF show and she’s excited to share them.
Along with those new shots, the celebrated photographer will also be releasing a limited edition zine and the last of her CaliLOVE tees will be available for purchase. If you can’t make the show or if you’d like to reserve your tee, contact Amanda via her La Vida Loca blog.
Inspired by the dia de los muertos (day of the dead) celebration, CaliLOVE, Amanda Lopez’s latest body of photographic work addresses more than the concept of death. Instead, Lopez’s portraits reveal and celebrate the preciousness of life. The artist’s first series captured completely indoors, CaliLOVE addresses the vastness of human experience and individuality. Viewers are called to witness the unique reactions and idiosyncrasies comprising the process of living as well as each individual’s way of coping with the uncertainty of life in the face of death. Within each photograph, CaliLOVE aims to capture this juncture between life, death and the everyday choices that define who we are and where we are headed.
Free Gold Watch is proud to feature the talented artist whose extensive photographic work has been shown in gallery exhibitions at 111 Minna, San Francisco City Hall, White Walls Gallery and Upper Playground Sacramento. The opening reception begins at 7PM until 11PM on Friday, June 18th 2010. Centering on Amanda Lopez’s intimately inclusive photography the evening will be a celebration of the nuances of everyday life and the preciousness of living.
