Description - Teresita Fernandez: Elemental by Amada Cruz

Teresita Fernandez's experiential and luminous works come to life in this monograph that reveals how one of America's most exciting installation artists investigates the intersection of culture and landscape. Teresita Fernandez's dazzling large-scale sculptures and installations employ diverse materials - charcoal, ceramics, chrome, steel, onyx, wood, resin, and enamel - with an utterly immersive effect. Accompanying a retrospective of Fernandez's career, and including images of her most recent installation, this book captures the powerful nature of an artistic practice exploring issues of perception, geography, ecology, history, and society. Featured works include Fire, her haunting ongoing series on the conceptual phenomena of landscape; Autumn (...Nothing Personal), created as a participatory space at Harvard University; and As Above, So Below, a series of immersive, interconnected installations referencing alchemy and the cosmos.
