HOPE. Mirrored Sculpture
By Ana Teresa FernándezWe are honored to collaborate with renowned artist Ana Teresa Fernández on this one-of-a-kind, intricate, and graphic sculpture. Ana Teresa, in conversation with our recent Girls Garage graduate Keiani Allen, chose the word "HOPE" to represent an important current sentiment and message. Then Ana Teresa got to work, creating this large typographic sculpture out of CNC-cut wood and inlaid mirror. The radiating star-shaped layout of the mirrors draws inspiration from Native American quilts, in which the star represents the North Star and a sense of grounding and reflection. The mirrored surface asks the viewer to reflect their own place within the world, and the larger atmosphere, questioning how to embody hope every day. This large three-dimensional sculpture consists of five hand-constructed elements (4 letters plus a period) that have mirrors tiled into the wooden faces on both front and back. A perfect piece for your mantle, HOPE. can be displayed in a line or stacked. Don't miss this opportunity to own a piece of Ana Teresa Fernández's powerful work.
25% of the work's proceeds will go directly to Keiani Allen, our Girls Garage graduate and young artist, who is a freshman at NYU studying engineering. The remainder of the proceeds will support our free programs for teen girls, helping us to fund building materials and instructor salaries year-round.
