NICK LOPEZ

Using only reclaimed wood, I create art that is unique, and at the same time draw attention to the endless possibilities of working exclusively with salvaged wood. Assembled like jigsaw puzzles or mosaics, every work I make consists of anywhere from hundreds to thousands of individual pieces of wood that are cut, glued, and nailed together, one piece at a time. I am particularly fascinated by the challenges involved in transforming scrap that would otherwise end up in landfills into beautiful sculptures or functional furnishings.
