About the Artist
Joanna Keane Lopez (b. 1991, Albuquerque, New Mexico) is a multidisciplinary artist whose work brings together large-scale installation, adobe architecture, and land-sourced practices as a reimagining of landscape and place. By working with materials of adobe, alíz, paper, and plant and mineral-based dyes her practice addresses concepts of sculpture in engagement with the land. Through the passing down of knowledge of vernacular architectural techniques of the greater Southwest, Keane Lopez creates work that seeks healing and reparation of fragmentation towards land, home, family, and community that is connected to her own multi-generational roots in New Mexico. Keane Lopez has been supported by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. She has exhibited nationally at institutions which include: The Momentary of the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, SITE Santa Fe, the National Hispanic Cultural Center Art Museum, and Blue Star Contemporary, and participated as artist in residence at A-Z West and Ucross Foundation.
