Urban Ecology by Silvia López Chavez

Currently on display at the BCEC through June 2017


The body of work in this exhibition explores the delicate balance of the human coexistence with its immediate natural water resource in the urban and industrial setting. The pieces combine different mediums, starting from gelatin monoprints, which are then layered with collage, watercolors, gouache, and sometimes color pencils, graphite and ink. The colorful re-imagined habitats of terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems, make reference to the evolutionary processes that keep them functioning as they also change and adapt in a complex interaction of disturbance and resilience.
