Dang Good Candy will present the opening of "Combustion, Release, Light" from artist Mike A. Lopez. The Mexican-born North Texas artist will showcase heritage and family in this solo exhibition.

"Combustion, Release, Light" is an intimate look at family dynamics resulting from a once-in-a-lifetime fire that decimated his childhood home. Using his family as subjects, Lopez invited them to reflect on the event and how they each created something from a disaster. Like the project’s subject matter, this body of work was produced amid the COVID-19 pandemic, a parallel time and space of introspection and rebirth.

Framed into three key phases, "Combustion, Release, Light" includes pre-fire, fire, and post-fire pieces within the show. The artist illustrates each moment through portraits and mixed-media capture of a performance art element that revisits the significant moment in time as it challenges each family member to think about not just what was lost but what had changed and, more importantly, what remained.
