Teresita Fernández

Miami, FL

Teresita Fernández is best known for her prominent public installations and experiential large-scale sculptures that evoke striking landscapes. Her work, often inspired by natural wonders — meteor showers, the aurora borealis, cloud formations, fire and the night sky invites an individualized experience of the space it occupies. Fernández, a Miami, Florida, native, places particular importance on her choice of medium, playing with the limitations of materials and employing those such as gold, graphite and other minerals that have complicated histories often tied to colonialism. All of her work, from her immersive installations to her small graphite panels, is characterized by an interest in perception and the psychology of looking. Fernández lives and works in Brooklyn, New York City.
