May 4: Fabian Lopez- Sleepwalkin'

Fabian Lopez- Sleeping Pills, 48x36", oil on canvas

Artspace Liberti is proud to present its May/June exhibition, Sleepwalkin’, paintings and drawings by Fabian Lopez. This exhibition runs from May 4 – June 16, 2012. The reception for Mr. Lopez will be held on Friday, May 4, from 6:30-9:30PM.

Lopez connects his work to storytelling and how the fallibility of memory can benefit the individual.  He approaches his work in a manner similar to that of a writer creating a memoir or in the way his family tells stories to recount their personal history.  The failure to recall fact or specific detail can free the artist to construct something that is new, indebted to the past but not shackled by it.  As Lopez states:

“… my paintings and drawings are not complete stories, rather the interest in creating semi fictional narratives through vignettes and documentations of stories and places within my work is to recount, compare, and then contrast my experiences within multiple locations and destinations which have similarities to one another.”

An essay by Jeffrey Ryan will accompany this exhibition.

Fabian Lopez lives and works in Philadelphia, PA.  He holds an MFA in Painting from the Tyler School of Art.   Mr. Lopez has both curated exhibitions and exhibited in his own work in the Los Angeles and Philadelphia areas.  He has been awarded residencies at the Vermont Studio Center and the Algarden Artist Residency in Sweden.

While the gallery does not maintain regular viewing hours, visits can be scheduled by appointment. Please e-mail us at to arrange a visit. Viewing is also possible during Sunday church services between 9:00AM-1:00PM.
