Sandra C. Fernandez – Fractured Layers of Dreams and Memories – Hope for the Future
This is a review article that addresses the variety of subject matters and mediums addressed by Texas-based, U.S./Ecuadorian Latina photographer, printmaker, and installation artist Sandra C. Fernandez. She is an artist whose work addresses traumas and hopes of migration, dislocation, loss, and memory pulled from her own and others’ experiences in childhood and beyond. Frequently delicate and understated, often made from fragile, ephemeral materials and discards, it nevertheless draws you in, commands your attention and packs a punch. You want to return for more. In doing so, it is important to remember to not only explore all she has created over the past twenty-five years, but to also pay attention to what she is doing now.
