Teresita Fernández


Teresita Fernández (b. 1968, Miami, Florida, United States) lives and works in Brooklyn, New York, United States. Maelstrom consists of three wind-battered palm trees cast in bronze. The work references increasingly ubiquitous tropical hurricanes and seeks to transform a banal image of the Caribbean into a more challenging and nuanced one.


Major support for the High Line Plinth is provided by Shelley Fox Aarons, Jennifer Allan Soros, Elizabeth Belfer, Suzanne Deal Booth, Fairfax Dorn, Andy and Christine Hall, Hermine Riegerl Heller, J. Tomilson Hill, The Holly Peterson Foundation, Annie Hubbard, Dorothy Lichtenstein, Donald R. Mullen, Jr., Miyoung Lee and Neil Simpkins, Doug Oliver, Mario J. Palumbo, Jr., Susan Scherr, Susan Viniar, and Anonymous.
