Ivan Lozano (Chicago, IL) is interested in the tension between folk religious practices and the spiritual void developing in contemporary, post-internet culture. The occult networks of influence in his work memorialize hidden or forgotten images, rituals and forms. This votive practice manifests itself in transdisciplinary sculptural constructions, photographic collages, and video projections. He is a powerful Pisces who received his M.F.A. from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2011.
