What Time Is It There?
The print is a coninuation of “Swift/Devotion” from Serie X. The majority of Lopez’ pieces have to do with a man and a woman, and the lack of that relationship, or how those two people are trying to come together in life. These two people in the print are separated by geography, and the buildings represent any kind of city. In the print, there is a morning shot that transforms into night shot, representing a full day.
“Even though these two people are separated, they are constantly thinking about each other throughout the day” – Lopez
