In Illustration: The Work of Dex FernandezJuxtapoz // Wednesday, 27 Jul 2011
Operating on various layers of meaning, the practice of ornamentation in the hands of Dex Fernandez turns into a play of signs that collide to construct new associative concepts, where the third meaning subsequently produced illuminating previously unseen messages.
Fernandez works with found images and material that he collages together to create fantastical figurative compositions, adding further to the mix is another skin inscribed with personal design, esoteric languages, chimera, and imaginary landscapes, all of which serve to create a labyrinth of possibilities. His interest lies on the investigation of found memories and its deconstruction through transformative appropriation. Dex Fernandez, lives and works in Manila, Philippines
