With a practice that invites viewers to reflect on definitions of land and location in relation to violence and colonization, Teresita Fernández’s “Caribbean Cosmos” approaches her somber subjects of thought through conceptual works that highlight interesting materials. Open at Lehmann Maupin through November 5, the artist has debuted a series of new works that include a large-scale glazed ceramic tile, a charcoal sculpture, and copper seascape dissolves, where the careful treatment of the metal has been eroded to create ocean scenes. Through these earthen materials, Fernández unravels an understanding of the Caribbean locale that is much more complex and nuanced than the common continental narrative suggests.
