Sandra C. Fernandez has an MFA, MA, and Bachelor of Science in Art from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, WI. Born in Queens, New York, she grew up in Ecuador and returned to the United States in 1987. Sandra’s work often includes issues of abandonment, isolation, sexism, political freedom, and war. Each of these has been a part of the personal experience of Sandra. Enjaulada means jailed or captive in English. The image of a young girl reveals the harsh reality of her life. Peering through a “skeleton” of a skirt (a recurring image in Sandra’s work), this structure symbolizes both imprisonment and comfort. Collaged, hand stitched pieces of paper outline the skirt, representing the child’s labor conditions across the border. Sandra has exhibited nationally and internationally.
