Sentimiento, 2004
metal, water
Pensamiento, 2004
metal, water
1414 Monterey Street, third floor
Fonseca has always drawn inspiration from children’s art and toys. The enlarged “toys” in this installation are created of rusted steel. The house, Pensiamiento, (thought) is filled with water in which a small steel version of a folded paper boat floats. A larger version of the boat, Sentimiento (feeling) also filled with water, sits on the floor next to the house. A small steel house — actually constructed by the artist in Cuba — floats in the boat.
