Naty Lopez-Holguin

Naty Lopez-Holguin is a Spanish-born artist, based in Portsmouth, UK. Her practice focuses on material transformation, using the everyday to convey points of human experience, creating sculptures as both singular objects and multiple elements in installation.

For the last seven years she has been mainly focusing on tumble-dryer fluff – a commonly discarded material full of associations. On the one hand, it did once belong to a garment which clothed us, gave us warmth and protection from exposure. On the other hand, it is now no more than a nuisance blocking the filter …

The often wall-mounted sculptures explore issues of worth and value through labour-intensive processes and the use of everyday materials which are often dismissed, while navigating a feel for space or lack of it.
