ABOUT MONICA FERNANDEZ

Monica Fernandez, an artist from Mexico, has been a professional painter for over 20 years. Self-taught from an early age, she later enrolled in formal studies at the Lorenzo de Medici Academy in Florence, Italy. Upon her return to Mexico, she studied fine art at the Instituto Allende de Bellas Artes, where she perfected a variety of techniques and creative methods.

Ever since, Monica has devoted herself to painting and her work has been showcased at home and abroad in a growing number of solo and group exhibitions including at International Biennial of Contemporary Art in Florence, Italy; Museo de Arte Sinaloa, Culiacan, Mexico; Museo Arocena, Torreón, Coah, Mexico; UNAM San Antonio, Texas, USA; Museo Regional del Bosque, Torreón, Coah, Mexico.

Her most recent body of work, 'Ufana', has been created around a discourse on beauty as a decoy that defies all questioning and distracts you from yourself. 'Ufana' is about a beauty so impervious that demands from the viewer to enter a state of inhibition.

ARTIST STATEMENT

“A free woman embodies courage, challenges, rebelliously sings, masters magic and exhibits madness. A free woman scares fear, because nothing can take her down. Governed freedom is a montage of skills. Those who remain imprisoned will doubt her feat, focusing on her the same scrutiny they have suffered, they have learned well. Once free, she will be judged and excluded. Holding on to that freedom requires the strength of every breath, up to her last. Once discovered, it’s impossible to disguise, to forget, it stands out and guides her among the dust she may rise.”
