Rosen utilizes various grammatical and typographical strategies to challenge how viewers perceive the text they're reading.

This recent body of textile and sculptures continues Connet’s twenty year fascination with the process of the dye-resist technique of mokume shibori.

With a twist towards the absurd and theatrical, Patricia isolates characters and spaces to suggest drama while encouraging ambiguity. She creates images in sculpture and paintings with situations of seeming opposition and paradoxes: silence and movement, private and public language, intimacy and banality, creating tension and poetic construction. She is intrigued with the poetics hidden in the munda...   [more]

She has never been overly concerned with promoting or marketing her work, and she has tended to lean “counter-trend,” as textile designer Jack Lenor Larsen has aptly put it, creating squares of quiet pattern to be placed on walls at a time when other t...   [more]
