Rocio Lopez Venero
Mexican Plastic Artist
Born on May 9, 1973, in Mexico City, from an early age, became familiar with art, particularly with painting.
She studied the Degree in Interior Design at the University Motolinia del Pedregal, where she made his first paintings. In order to complement and expand her studies, she took some painting courses, including Susana Marín’s workshop, where she was able to completely develop herself and for the first time to let the impulse to paint flow. There she was invited to her first collective exhibition, followed by another one that same year.
With the passage of time, her style evolved, which led her to change workshops several times, until she met the painter Guadalupe Morazua, who encouraged her to continue with her career, through her example of discipline and delivery to art. With his new works, another collective exhibition of the workshop “El arte x el arte” was set up.
Some time later, she had enough material to mount his first solo exhibition, with the support of Héctor Hernández Pons, which reached his dream in October 2005 with the exhibition “Findings”. In this way, has managed to expose individually three times more. In one of these exhibitions she met Jaime Téllez, who has shared his techniques with her and has helped her ever since. Its style is marked by the Oaxacan culture. The taste for this city prompted her to travel repeatedly and to know in detail the Oaxacan folklore, as well as the characteristics and techniques of local painting. In it, she discovered artists without rules to express their ideas and feelings, thanks to the wide color combination.
“In the work of Rocio López, the first thing that attracts the viewer is the good management of the color, a loose brushwork that denotes officio, experience and interest in experimenting with different ranges and textures. When we observe the tables, we note the interest to find new metaphors, new evocations that will serve as inspiration for her work, which enable to move forward to find her own vocabulary.”
