Teresita Fernández (b. 1968, Miami, Florida) is known for her prominent public installations and experiential large-scale sculptures that evoke striking landscapes as well as her unconventional use of material. Often inspired by natural wonders, her work invites a contemplative experience and places particular importance on her choice of medium. She explores the various limitations of materials such as gold and graphite as well as other, all of which have complicated histories often tied to colonialism. Her entire body of work is characterized by an interest in perception and the psychology of looking.
