In her newest series of work Theresa Fernald examines the family, with all its drama, its humor and joy, the little moments and old memories. Her work is quirky and touching, her imagery personal, yet somehow familiar to us all.
Fernald states, “My new series of realistic and color exaggerated oil and watercolor paintings thematically examine the actors in the theatre of the family. This series of familial iconography encompass the ephemeral states of human expression, imagination and creativeness.”
Theresa Fernald is a graduate of California State University, Long Beach (M.F.A.) and California College of Arts and Crafts (B.F.A.).
