Join us Friday, October 21, 2022 at Noon for and Artist talk with Lenora Jesus Lopez Schindler!
All of the paintings are composites of specific locations their history or their present. None are direct transcriptions of place, but instead form the breadth of Schindler Lopez’s’ inner visions of this home, this place. Included in the series are the ever-smaller area we leave for wildness, for animals, birds and insects, who have been forcibly adapted to our activities. Lenora paints directly without a preliminary sketch. Once settled on a subject matter Schindler Lopez tries to capture the essence quickly. “I am interested in aliveness but not life-likeness. My goal with this corpus of work is to encourage citizen observations which I believe lead to gratitude and a sense of shared responsibility.”
Lenora Jesus Lopez Schindler is an interdisciplinary artist who has worked in drawing, painting,
sculpture, and multi-media installation. She teaches studio and art history courses at Gonzaga
University, the Community Colleges of Spokane, and Eastern Washington University.
