DRINKS CABINET, private commission. Made in collaboration with coveted designer Christopher Prain, of Christopher&Chanond Interior Design.
Mr Prain designed an elegant drinks cabinet with curved door panels. Fernandez treated the panels inside and out with marble powder gesso. Eight layers later and after sanding the panels with a fine grade sandpaper, fernandez drew with pencil a complex motive inspired by one of her intricate pencil drawings. The use of gesso not only guarantees the permanence of the white surface but its conservation from light, and the daily use and abuse.
