KANDY

LOPEZ

Kandy G. Lopez-Moreno, M.F.A., is an Associate Professor in the Department of Performing and Visual Arts at the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences (CAHSS). As a visual artist, Professor Lopez-Moreno explores constructed identities, celebrating the strength, power, confidence, and swag of individuals who live in urban and often economically disadvantaged environments. With a variety of mediums, her images develop a personal and socially compelling visual vocabulary that investigates race, the human defense mechanism, visibility and armor through fashion, and gentrification. Professor Lopez-Moreno wants her artwork to help educate, communicate, and foster uncomfortable topics that we seem to look past or avoid in our multi-cultural society. Representing individuals within poor communities in the U.S., these portraits help her, as a female Afro-Dominican American, come to terms with the way she too has to adopt and perform identities of survival.
