BETTY, Nancy K.
Featured in The Studio's permanent collection is the
painting "Myakka Fork" by Cuban native Jake Fernandez.
Inspired by the mysterious beauty of the Florida wilderness,
the landscape is painted on 24 wood panels to form an 8
foot by 12 foot mural, creating a life-size bas relief tableau.
This extraordinary painting dramatically depicts the
vanishing natural Florida landscape on an irregular surface
which shifts the view of the subject and animates the
painting with patterns of light and shadow.
