"I live the creative process as a form of disruption form reality and social exclusion. Returning through form, texture and color, to that what unites us as humankind: The ability to love."
Brenda R. Fernandez (Brenda Rodriguez Fernández) was born in Mexico City in 1973 and studied Artistic Initiation at the National Institute of Fine Arts of México and then majored in Art at the University of the Cloister of Sor Juana. Brenda also studied with Master Luis Nishizawa, in 1997, with whom she learned the handling of multiple painting techniques and procedures.

In 2016, Brenda R. Fernandez prepared "Destramando", an art exhibition in which she recreated the layout of her map. Stains, firm lines almost exact, scratches that mold shapes, breaks that design compasses, soft chiaroscuros that denote rhythms, accumulated broken forms summed up to build a construction.
In 2018, she began exploring the use of different techniques, materials and textures, as well as the handling of solid colors into an abstract monochrome, that provokes the spectator to have a wider interaction and dialogue with the artwork.

Fernandez exhibited her artwork at the Contemporary Art Fair Carrousel du Louvre Paris (October), at the Art Fair in Brussels (Nov), at the Modern Art Museum in Vienna (Sept - Jan.)
