Over the Influence is pleased to share new works on paper by Nicasio Fernandez. Nicasio Fernandez’s compositions are seen coming together in this series of sketches and studies for larger paintings. They have a distinctly surreal quality that is simultaneously enticing and discomforting. The figures are physically and emotionally pushed to the limit, contorted, and faced with life’s conundrums. Throughout the works body parts extend from the confines of the image further playing with scale and volume. Leaving elongated necks, erected snouts and torsos to be stretched and enlarged. While his paintings are known for their sharp line work, repeating patterns and vivid combinations of color, these drawings are refreshingly loose and give the viewer a greater understanding of the artist’s process.
