"Duo Means Two," a solo exhibition by Jessica Fuentes, will be on view in the Frost Gallery at the Fort Worth Community Arts Center from February 29–March 28, 2020.
Closing reception: March 28, 2020; 6-9 p.m.
Whether working in photography, mixed media, or narrative writing, Fuentes’ work explores the concepts of time, memory, and repetition. Often she examines these ideas through the display of photographs using transparency or vinyl physically layer and consequently distorts images. In duo means two, it is the process—the repetition of carrying out a simple idea over a fourteen-year period of time and across a variety of locations—that relates directly to the larger themes of Fuentes’ work. The images in this series capture pairings of everyday items from both outdoor and interior scenes. At first glance, the work seems to simply present the mundane coupling of objects. As the viewer looks closer, the repetition of paired items highlights the relationships between the objects and inevitably evokes the complexities of personal relationships.
