Mateo López in Art Review

Art Review | Columbia

January 2015

by Mark Rappolt
“López himself studied architecture for two years, before switching to art. ‘I thought it was going to be an interlude,’ he says, ‘but I never went back. Paper and cardboard were somehow the resources available, and drawing and sculpture became bigger concerns. I continued exploring the sphere of ideas that surround the meaning of architecture. Once Johann Wolfgang von Goethe called architecture ‘frozen music’; then Quincy Jones says: if architecture is frozen music, then music must be liquid architecture. I think for me, the transition of matter is more interesting than the actual definition, to find myself between art and architecture.'”
