Gaby Collins-Fernandez

Entwining surfaces and materials, the multi-faceted work of Gaby Collins-Fernandez uses “words as language, gesture as language, color as language, scale as language, all devoid of inherent authority.” Overlaying or compositionally “stacking” various elements into her work, Collins-Fernandez creates an artistic language that interprets texture, weight, text and gradient into an emotional landscape. Says the artist of this process, “Stacking forces elements to be read as distinct and layered, visual experience comes from the particular layer being observed. In the work, stacking happens up and down, as abutted halves, and projected outward from the surface. As a strategy, it allows for me to equalize categories: color, surface, text, gesture, material—all function as kinds of language within the work.” Collins-Fernandez has shown in exhibitions at a number of galleries and insitituions including Diet Gallery, Miami, Nnamdi Center, Detroit and Touch Gallery, Cambridge, MA. In 2013 she was the recipient of a Rema Hort Mann Foundation Visual Art Grant Award.
