Mexican-born painter Ana Teresa Fernandez holds a master's degree in Fine Arts at San Francisco Art Institute and has exhibited internationally in Mexico and South Africa. Her paintings attack the double standard imposed on women, showing them performing menial tasks like laundry and sweeping.

"The notion of trying to mop the beach, sweep the sand, it's like Sisyphus," she said, referring to the king in Greek mythology who is cursed for eternity to push a boulder up a hill only to watch it roll down again. "People who may have skills and trades come here and end up in this menial work, cleaning hotel rooms, washing dishes. But there's strength, persistence, to get up every day and clean up after someone else. I try to humanize it a little bit."

Her upcoming solo exhibition, Ablution, displays the reflective and transformative powers of water. Using oil on canvas, Fernandez manages to make her subjects look as if they’re in shift – jumping into a pool with heels on or swimming fully clothed.
