Theresa Fernald

October 9 – November 9, 2013



Recent Work

My recent work takes inspiration from Jean Simeon Chardin’s painting, ‘The Bubble Blower,’ at the Los Angeles County Art Museum. My oil paintings and mixed media works encompass the immediacy and ecstatic reaction occurring when children encounter these prismatic air gems. Engaging formal qualities, color saturation, value, and tonal mixing, I contrast soft and hard edges against placid and active states with an interplay of patterns and rhythms. Here I maintain my interest with the ephemera of life witnessing the passing states of complexities and dualities.
