Primitive man’s relationship to nature was at once intimate and transformative imbued with his own hope and terror -- divine.

Modern man’s scientific mentality has relegated such vision of nature to poets, artists and other symbolists interested in internal realities.

Surrealist painter Jose Lopes uses the spirits resident in natural image to evoke human states of being and becoming. In his exhibition, “Animist Eye,” Lopes presents powerful transformations which dramatize the beautiful, sometimes grotesque natural man.

MALE MUSE
"Whenever I was depressed or disgusted, I would feel him, that spirit inside, urging me back to living, back to drawing, I believe there is a lot to the world that can’t be seen or touched, and if you turn away from that — especially if you are an artist — you are avoiding an important part of life, maybe the very heart of it.” — Tom of Finland
