Teresita Fernández Lights a Fire in the West

By Alanna Martinez

From Observer.com

Teresita Fernández knows how to light up a room, and she’s done just that inside the front gallery of Anthony Meier Fine Arts in San Francisco. The century-old house inside which Mr. Meier’s gallery is located has been set ablaze by Ms. Fernández’s fiery handiwork, which features a smoky landscape rendered in charcoal and a glittering inferno made from thousands of glazed ceramic tiles.

Ms. Fernández is widely known for her large-scale experiential installations, the most recent being a 500-foot mirrored canopy for New York’s Madison Square Park which was experienced by nearly 50,000 people each day during its nine-month run.

Teresita Fernández: FATA MORGANA, at Madison Square Park, NYC

From TimeOut New York

Over the past 15 years, artist Teresita Fernández has created more than a dozen public art projects that put the viewer in the role of both spectator and performer. Recalling natural phenomena, her evocative installations, which could be called conceptual landscapes, often rely on optical illusions that become more magical with repeated visits. She talks about her new piece, Fata Morgana, at Madison Square Park, and the earlier works that led to it.

Teresita Fernández at Almine Rech Gallery, London

November 4- December 20, 2014

Almine Rech Gallery
11 Savile Row, 1st floor,
Mayfair, W1S3PG London

From Artdaily.org

LONDON.- Inspired by the landscape and natural phenomena as well as diverse historical and cultural references, Fernández presents a group of new works for her second exhibition with Almine Rech Gallery that collectively demonstrate her remarkable ability to transform materials into unique perceptual experiences.

This is the artist’s first solo exhibition in London. Fernández’s new Golden paintings, made with India ink on reflective metallic panels, continue the artist’s inquiries into materiality, landscape painting, mining, the connections between the cosmos and the subterranean, and the cultural significance of gold.

The thick, visceral layer of ink marks on top of the mirror-like surface explores painterly conventions of figure-in-the-landscape by superimposing the viewer’s own distorted reflection into the image. Shifting reflections animate the landscape scenes into almost gestural, real-time cinematic dissolves where the viewer becomes engaged in the immersive, experiential quality the work.

Fernández’s intense research and investigation into the materiality of gold and the convention of landscape can also be seen in her large-scale exhibition of sculptures and installations titled As Above So Below, on view at Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art, North Adams, Massachusetts through March 2015.

Teresita Fernández: As Above So Below at MASS MoCA, Massachusetts

On view beginning May 24, 2014

MASSACHUSETTS MUSEUM OF CONTEMPORARY ART
1040 MASS MoCA WAY    
NORTH ADAMS, MA 01247

Demonstrating the artist’s remarkable ability to transform materials and their surrounding architecture into an enveloping perceptual experience, Teresita Fernández: As Above So Below combines graphite and gold to create a series of immersive, interconnected installations whose scale shifts from intimate to vast, from miniature to panoramic. Fernández’s largest solo exhibition to date, As Above So Below is made up entirely of new works.

Describing a universe in balance, the phrase “as above, so below” originates from the ancient Hermetic tradition central to alchemy, in which every action occurring on one level of reality (physical, emotional, or mental) correlates to every other. Responding to MASS MoCA’s massive and light-filled first-floor galleries, Fernández’s trio of new landscape-informed, large-scale installations embodies this expression, and is united through the show’s elaborately detailed exploration of two essential minerals.

Cuban Americans – Our America: The Latino Presence In American Art – Smithsonian Museum

American Art Museum
8th And F Street NW
Washington DC
 

An exhibition opening next month at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, “Our America: The Latino Presence in American Art,” will highlight a chapter of art history that remains a secret to far too many Americans.

Since joining the Smithsonian in 2010, E. Carmen Ramos, the curator of Latino art at the American Art Museum, has had an ambitious mandate: to strengthen our holdings of Latino art and present that collection in a fresh way. “Our America,” which she curated, will display the results of that quest so far. It will include 92 works (by 72 artists), fully 63 of which have been acquired since 2011.

This exhibit is well represented by Cuban American Artists including Luis Cruz Azaceta, Maria Brito, Maria Magdalena Campos-Pons, Teresita Fernandez, Ana Mendieta, Abelardo Morell, Maria Martinez-Cañas, Arturo Rodriguez, Emilio Sanchez, and Rafael Soriano.
