Through painting, performance, and video, Ana Teresa Fernandez explores the politics of intersectionality and the ways it shapes personal identity, culture, and social rhetoric. Her work illuminates the psychological and physical barriers that define gender, race, and class in Western society and the global south. Born in Mexico, and living and working in California, the artist her works often explore how women navigate the geographic, social, and physiological boundaries between the United States and Mexico. Documenting her performances and installations using photography and the painted image, Fernández’s work reveals how women’s bodies become surfaces imprinted with political and social upheavals.

Fernandez has had solo exhibitions at Humboldt State University in Eureka, Mexican Consulate in San Francisco, and Electric Works in San Francisco. Her work has been included in group exhibitions at the Tijuana Biennial in Mexico, Snite Museum at Notre Dame University, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco, and The Oakland Art Museum.
