All of the oil paintings by Ana Teresa Fernandez are focused around females. Women are seen performing menial daily tasks such as mopping, sweeping and ironing within these pieces. Her stunning work leaves out no detail, and I found my eyes drawn to small elements like the Comet cleaning powder and Joico shampoo bottles. What is missing, however, are the faces of the women—a provocative nod to the expectations of the housewife.
These paintings by Ana Teresa Fernandez depict and challenge the social standards of feminine duty.wpid-360250-2011-03-13-15-18.jpgwpid-360251-2011-03-13-15-18.jpgwpid-360263-2011-03-13-15-18.jpgwpid-360253-2011-03-13-15-18.jpgwpid-360249-2011-03-13-15-18.jpgwpid-360244-2011-03-13-15-18.jpg
