How Can I Tell You?
In this time of uprooted comfort, we are all often confronted with unfamiliar situations while simultaneously questioning how to navigate through previously known territory. Within the body of work exhibited in How Can I Tell You?, Nicasio Fernandez presents visual representations for the emotional uncertainty that reigns in our current day to day. In this exhibition, Fernandez continues his career-long exploration of how the human figure can take form, whether that be through heads occupying the shapes of objects, artificial skin tones, or overextended, blown-up arms and appendages. New to the painter, and new to his audience, is the visual and emotional isolation of these figures in their individual environments. Left to their own thoughts, human-like beings exude concern in their anxious body gestures and facial expressions.
