Carlos Fernandez explores the intersections of geometry and repetition with reductive application. His continued exploration of images, either organic or geometric, recalls the hard-edged, coloristic simplicity of Ellsworth Kelly. Fernandez draws particular inspiration from generic symbols to create compositions that neutralize the icons of their usual associations. A button, a horseshoe magnet, a clover, or a cross, these mundane objects are transformed from symbol to shape when drawn by Fernandez's hand. Fernandez also works digitally, using an iPad to create surreal tableaus of patterns that reverberate against a litany of appropriated symbols and utilitarian icons.
