Ana Teresa Fernandez Oil Paintings

Sep 27, 2010 by     121 Comments    Posted under: Design

Mexican-born painter Ana Teresa Fernandez holds a master’s degree in Fine Arts at San Francisco Art Institute and has exhibited internationally in Mexico and South Africa. Her paintings attack the double standard imposed on women, showing them performing menial tasks like laundry and sweeping.

    Wow… That’s all I can say. The painting tells a lot of emotions. It seems a mystic from the side of the beholder. You ( Ana Teresa Fernandez ) makes simple part of life to it’s extravagance of beauty. I never seen a simple action of life took more definition on it. It makes me teary eye. Thanks for showing this to us.

    You cover your females with shirts, cloth, water. What is the symbolism? Nice work!

  • Midnightbaby94

    wow just wow these paintings look like photographs, they are that amazing!

  • Catherine Uffen

    Oh Midnightbaby94,   these paintings are so much much better than photographs no matter how superb photos may be.  These are the expressions of a clear mind and a mastery of light and pigment, stroke by stroke.

    How low has art sunk today! Look at Vladimir Dimitrov- The Master, or Clive Barker, or Goya! That is art this is bull crap!

    • Agentjohnnywls

      Can you state your claim as to why? The technique and content is superb. Art is art. There is no good art or bad art. If you were an artist you would know that accepting what comes from others soul is an important aspect of art. Because your too shallow to grasp something does not mean it is “bull crap”. We are all in this together, don’t shun yourself from the whole by stating that someone else sucks. ”
      How simple it is to love, and exhausting it is always to find fault”

      • Darr Sandberg

         “If you were an artist you would know that accepting what comes from others soul is an important aspect of art.”

        I am an artist, and your statement is not accurate.  “what comes from others’ souls” is huge, and includes the ranting of drunks and violence from abusive spouses.

    • Chilosachic7

      You obviously have no eye for art. If you really knew what art is, you would know that art is whatever you create it to be. Just because YOU dont like it, dosent mean its not art. This world is changing everyday. So go ahead and look at all the old stuff  that dosent even matter anymore, while we stand here and accept the changes in our world.

      • Darr Sandberg

         “. If you really knew what art is, you would know that art is whatever you create it to be.”

        That isn’t true either.

        ‘So go ahead and look at all the old stuff  that dosent even matter anymore,”

        This indicates that you don’t know what art is, and don’t see that Ana’s work is very much in the same line as ‘the old stuff that doesn’t matter anymore’.

    • Chrismcglinchey

      like to see some of your artwork!?

    • MeMeMeMe

      I think everyone needs to calm down.  Why cant anyone state their opinion without being slaughtered nowadays?
      I love art, and I wish I could paint as well as this artist does.  But I must say, it is just not my style, I personally would not hang this up in my home.  I think a lot of them are awkward and lack something. Doesn’t mean she is bad.
      Come on people.  Chill the fuck out.

    • flaquita

      really? could you do this? Do you know how hard it is to get that gloss, that form, the colors and the texture and the light to pop out of a piece? These are beautiful. Don’t dis something until you can better it.

  • LLD

    The art is nicely done. The message is stupid and irrelevant to our time.

    • Thefauxphoenix

      Not really, while we’ve moved past the “50′s housewife” stage I think the message she’s sending is still relevant. We encourage women to wear high heels and makeup even though they’re impractical, but many women conform to be “sexy.” Plus we still have the idea of a breadwinning man in our nation, despite all of the people living their lives contrary. Men still make higher salary in the same working positions.

  • Hsrr12

    beatiful paitings, she is obsed with women legs

  • Chrismcglinchey

    I think your work is very good,and whatever agenda or topic you pursue you will excel in its discilpline and execution, well done xx
