Rosalie López’s Utopia’s Growth and Dystopia Falls was created in part of the “Utopia/Dystopia” portfolio, curated by artist Miyo Stevens-Gandara. Miyo invited 26 artists to each pick two cards from a full deck, incorporating a diverse range of interpretations and ideas into a single, unified collection. Here, López visualizes Utopia as a growth of diamonds sprouting and rising up. While a de-throned king reverses the authority and power of a single ruler, signifying the fall of dystopia.

Having lived in Gardena as well as South Los Angeles during her early adulthood, she was raised with a strong appreciation for cultural and communal values. Facing loss and violence within her family, she is acutely aware of the interplay between society and culture. Therefore she uses her art as a platform to communicate and share her understanding of her environment and experiences.

López received dual B.F.A. degrees in Graphic Design & Printmaking at California State University, Long Beach, followed by her M.F.A in Printmaking at Indiana University. At current, she lives in Los Angeles, where she teaches and creates art. Her work has been exhibited across the nation, such as in the National Hispanic Cultural Center, the Mexican Cultural Institute, the Indianapolis Art Center, Avenue 50 Studios, and Self Help Graphic & Art.
