When we talk about hyperrealism, the word photography always appears, but the reality is that each artist works differently, according to their own ideas, desires, and goals. López's work is the search for the perfect work, and in that search the simple copy is insufficient, so his works are a unique creation of various references: combining notes, sketches, photographs, color tests, observation of nature, etc … This is to get the work he has in mind, above and beyond any reference. Composition, as a general base and stabilizing element, has become his obsession, to achieve a harmonious and orderly set; and the color, which in his case takes on special importance, being at times a barrier that can be made almost impassable, a tough challenge that has taken him to the limit more than once.
"One day, I decided to change an element of the landscape. Since this moment, it became a kind of obsession the fact of trying to obtain an equilibrated ensemble going beyond the referent; working sometimes with a lot of images for only a painting trusting my intuition, because it is possible to foresee with accuracy the final result". "According to the composition, I usually take profit of closer elements in order to equilibrate the “visual weights” and give more strength and/ or depth to the landscapes. I also usually change or modify some elements, trying to find the ensemble stability. Of course, I also look for a colour equilibrium avoiding as much as possible contrasts or stridencies, which could stray from the attention focused on the important elements".
