Theresa Fernald continues her interest in interpreting everyday life with her recent series that focuses on the simple childhood pleasure of blowing bubbles. Fernald’s work is touched with a sense of nostalgia, humor, and a fair amount of strangeness. The ephemeral nature of bubbles is a fitting metaphor for the fleeting moments of childhood which seem to pass so quickly. And, on a formal level, capturing a bubble’s delicateness is known as one of the great challenges for artists.
