“Fiber Of My Being” is a two person show featuring new paintings by Anne Canfield and site specific installations by Ana Hernandez.

Anne Canfields imagery is founded out of two worlds; one real and one imagined, meeting somewhere in between. In her paintings she uses representation and symbolism to voice a story or create a portrait. She explores a sense of being, time and of place as each piece is remnant from personal experiences, travels and daydreams.

For Ana Hernandez the female body interweaves with the environment around her to materialize ideas of transplantation and adaptation. These connections take form in a discipline of colors and simple materials which are recontextualized and brought to a greater importance through volume and the insistence of repetition.
