Texas Contemporary Artists Series: Ana Fernandez

September 10, 2012 - January 20, 2013

The Texas Contemporary Artists Series exhibitions showcase the talents of some of Texas’ premier artists. This series focuses on the work of contemporary artists who call Texas home. Common to all of their work is the bold vision and unbridled exuberance that is the quintessence of Texan culture. The Texas Contemporary Artists Series is curated by Arturo Infante Almeida, curator for the UTSA art collection.
The next artist in the series in Ana Fernandez, a Corpus Christi native who currently lives in San Antonio. A graduate of the Art Institute of Chicago (BFA) and the University of California at Los Angeles (MFA), Ana Fernandez has exhibited her work nationally.
From the artist:

The content of my series contains some of my favorite subjects: magic, true crime, paranormal activity, love, murder, mythology, witchcraft and superstition all set in the neighborhoods of my hometown.


I combine familiar domestic elements with subtle, sometimes eerie, hints of the unknown. I would describe it as naturalistic and realistic with elements of the fantastic or supernatural.

Curator's Statement:

The work of Ana Fernandez, explores the epic histories buried in every neighborhood. Her most recent work unearths the stories found in the joyous bits and mundane pieces of life in San Antonio.
