En Pensando Tina Fuentes explora las posibilidades que ofrecen las diversas tonalidades del negro. Las variaciones en el acabado de la superficie y los cambios de tono muestran las sutilezas de expresión que existen dentro de una paleta de color limitada. Durante muchos años, Tina Fuentes limitó su paleta de colores al blanco y el negro. Su arte ha indagado en los límites del arte abstracto y representativo, así como en los temas de justicia social y feminismo.

Pensando explores the possibilities of different shades of black. The variation in surface finish as well as changes in tone demonstrate the subtleties of expression available within a limited palette. For many years, Tina Fuentes limited her palette to black and white. Her art has explored the boundaries of abstract and representational art as well as issues of social justice and feminist themes.
