The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth Presents Exhibition of the Work by Teresita Fernández
Teresita Fernández, Vertigo (Sotto in su), 2007. Polished precision-cut aluminum, 41.375 x 144 x 129 inches.


FORT WORTH, TX.- The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth presents FOCUS: Teresita Fernández. The FOCUS exhibition series is organized by the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth and Curator Andrea Karnes for the Museum’s Director’s Council, a group that supports acquisitions at the Museum. Each FOCUS exhibition presents work by an emerging contemporary artist. The exhibition is on view April 17 through June 19, 2011.

Sculptor Teresita Fernández creates work in response to nature. Reminiscent of clouds, rainstorms, waterfalls, and stars in the night sky, Fernández’s mercurial forms shimmer, float, and undulate before our eyes. The artist is interested in generating an intimate experience with each of her installations. As she has put it, “What I’m after is a lingering, ephemeral engagement. Slow, quiet, and with enough depth kinesthetically to be recalled by the viewer after the work is no longer in front of them.”

Fernández was born in 1968 in Miami, Florida, and lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. She received her BFA at the Florida International University, Miami, in 1990; and her MFA at Virginia Commonwealth, Richmond, in 1992. She has been featured in numerous solo exhibitions, both nationally and internationally, including the Blanton Museum of Art, Austin, Texas; Miami Art Museum, Miami, Florida; Artpace, San Antonio, Texas; and the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington, DC. Fernández was one of seventeen artists worldwide whose work was chosen to be featured in the new Cowboys Stadium. Her luminous Starfield, 2009, made with mirrored glass cubes on anodized aluminum, is located in the West OC Elevator lobby of the Owner’s Club.
