Circulation by Ana Teresa Fernández.
San Francisco based, Mexican artist Ana Teresa Fernández is creating Circulation, a sculpture that represents the interconnection needed to provide life and sustainability to grow. The lines evoke the rows of vines which host grapes from all over the world, side by side. Similarly, many hands from all walks of life, and different parts of the world, work side by side making this connection. An invisible constellation in Napa has made this circulatory system possible.
Each circle of the artwork is connected to another. They are supported and integrally held together. The same neon green that workers wear as safety gear while working the fields is the main color for Circulation. This often-invisible population, who toils the earth day and night will be at the center of the conversation. The shape is modeled after the Opuntia Prickly Pear Cactus. This plant migrated North naturally from Baja California and is now part of Napa’s landscape.
