Artist: Elena Patino
Title: Radial Population II 
Pins
For the past 2 years Elena Patino’s work dealt mainly with different aspects of identity. Gender and race have been examined through materials and questioned through analogies and processes such as her still ongoing work around skin tones "Me by Others, Others By Me". While still interested in this never-ending investigation, Patino has re-discovered her passion for detail-oriented, painstakingly labor intensive processes. Patino’s current body of work takes from her previous engagement in the construction of organic structures based on repetition with a strong connection to fiber arts. While not necessarily made with fiber materials, her work borrows from the pliable quality of textiles.
