The landscapes of Abelardo López are rooted in the rich agricultural valley of his native Oaxaca. Richly textured and layered depictions of fields and pastures portray a quiet, harmonious, idealized vision of abundance revealed, paradoxically, through spare compositions built on wide, almost panoramic vistas and a painterly vocabulary of texture, light, and color.
