Cecilia Fernandez Q is a contemporary artist who believes that once she has finished a piece of work, it no longer belongs to her. It has much of herself in it, her emotions, her intellect, her past and present, her hopes and her force, but in the end it has its own independent reality. That is how it communicates with the viewer.

About the Artist
In the motion of Chilean artist Cecilia Fernandez Q’s paintings lingers a tantalizing glimpse of the ethereal and the infinite. Colors breathe and glow under softly diffused sunlight, while her bold landscapes, women and sleek dogs are presented fractured and melting as muscles coil and flex in repose, infused with a timeless calm. Blending oil on canvas with charcoals and mixed media elements, she releases her control of the art as it is finished, finding creative freedom in giving of herself as she brings each piece to completion. Her energetic and elemental works speak in the universal language of nature, the soul and the divine feminine. The artist studies widely to bring a connection with the wider world into her works, investigating literature, history, Chilean anthropology and pre-Columbian culture.
Born in Santiago, Chile where she currently lives and works, Cecilia Fernandez Q began her artistic career in sculpture at the University of Chile. She has spent the past decade working in paint and receiving international exposure with exhibits worldwide.
