He is interested in the frontier between the real and the imaginary, and in human behavior and the search for transcendence. He draws on mythology, symbolism, and metaphor as sources of expression in his work. In addition to prints, he makes multidisciplinary artist’s books that include haiku, prose, drawing, photography, and mixed media. Fernández has exhibited his photographs in the United States at the Art Museum of the Americas of the Organization of American States, Washington, D.C.; FotoFest International and the Institute of Hispanic Culture, Houston; and Yale University, New Haven, Connecticut.
