Naty Lopez-Holguin

Naty Lopez-Holguin is a Spanish-born artist, based in Portsmouth, UK.

Her work explores issues of worth and value through labour-intensive processes and the use of everyday materials that are often dismissed.

She creates sculptures as both singular objects and multiple elements in installations. Always interested in using materials to convey points of human experience; presenting the low value, everyday in a transformed state, to simultaneously instigate associations and interpretations.
