Angel Fernandez and Kit Reisch
A Pop Up Exhibition at Kirk Hopper Fine Art
3008 Commerce St, Dallas, TX
|Kirk Hopper Fine Art is graciously hosting a pop up exhibition of Cohn Drennan Contemporary
artists Angel Fernandez and Kit Reisch, titled ReDux, opening April 18. Kit was recently in Dallas
when this opportunity was made available by KHFA, so the gallery elected to revive the 2012
pairing of these two artists’ Sublimation Simulacrum exhibition.
Fernandez’ voluptuous, round and colorful sculptures explore masculinity formed by a pre
-established dynamic with the female gender. The resultant vocabulary is playful and inviting
which activates a curiosity warranting physical investigation. Reisch explores architectural forms
that can be seen as surrogates for people. As societies, private entities or individuals create
structures to serve their needs, it follows that the structure itself would reflect the character of
the creating entity. Architecture becomes an inherent indication of cultural critique.
Kit Reisch is a Dallas native currently residing in Prague with recent solo exhibitions in Bologna,
Milan and Prague. His work was represented in VOLTA 8, Basel, Switzerland and Contemporary
Istanbul. Residencies include Foundation OBRAS, Evoramonte, Portugal, Seoul Artspace
Geumcheon, Seoul, Korea, MeetFactory, Prague, Czech Republic. Reisch was one of six artists
in Here. There. & Beyond curated by Joan Davidow at the Dallas Contemporary in 2010.
Angel Fernandez is a Fort Worth artist and Associate Professor of art at Tarrant County College,
Trinity River Campus and taught at the University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth. His sculptures
have been exhibited at the Longview Museum of Fine Arts, the Wichita Falls Museum of Art, Art
Santa Fe, multiple exhibitions at the Dallas Latino Cultural Center and the Fort Worth Sculpture
We appreciate Kirk Hopper Fine Art for hosting this pop up event and Casey Stranahan for
her coordination. Join us at 3008 Commerce Street, April 18, 2015, 6:30 – 8:30 for the opening
