Fausto Fernandez: Phone Screen Text Message of a Mexican Girl in Miami #2
2017, mixed media on canvas
Turner Carroll Gallery, 725 Canyon Road, 505-986-9800 In his mixed-media paintings, Fausto Fernandez explores the theme of order and chaos. He incorporates maps, blueprints, elements of language, emojis, and geometry to create a sense of structure and then merges these with abstract brushstrokes, splattered paint, crayon scrawls, and other mediums, forming an interplay between them. Fernandez grew up along the border of Cuidad Juárez and El Paso. Crossing Boundaries opens with a 5 p.m. reception on Friday, Feb. 2.
