Patricia Fernández — Memory Is In Progress: The Heart
Patricia Fernández (b. 1980 in Burgos, Spain; lives and works in Los Angeles) studied at Saint Martins College of Art; University of California, Los Angeles; and received an MFA from California Institute of the Arts (2010). Fernández uses personal narrative, memory, omission, and abstraction to transmit histories and build connection between people and places. She works primarily with painting and archives in order to investigate the inaccuracy of inherited memories and the subjectivity of personal experience. She has exhibited her work at Centro de Arte Caja de Burgos, Spain; LA><ART, Los Angeles; Clifton Benevento, New York; David Petersen Gallery, Minneapolis; Commonwealth and Council, Los Angeles; Los Angeles Contemporary Archive (LACA); and the Hammer Museum in Made in LA 2012.
