Patricia Orpilla is a visual artist who uses an interdisciplinary process to create paintings, prints, and textiles. Her recent work uses print to explore the indexical relationship of weaving to language. By working in an interdisciplinary format, she draws relationships between systems that are materially or metaphorically interdependent. She is interested in the potential of material metaphors to engage questions about authorship, industry, and ideology. She references various archives for fingerprints of these narratives—weaving patterns, religious texts, or ethnographers’ notes become her source material. Recently, she was a resident artist at the Museum of Arts and Design (New York). She completed a fellowship in the summer of 2021 at the Beinecke Library where she researched ephemera such as maps and religious texts related to late nineteenth-century US-Philippines relations. She received her MFA from the Yale University School of Art in painting and printmaking. She has recently shown her work at Jeffrey Deitch, Kiosk Gallery, Front / Space, Beggar’s Table, Vulpes Bastille, and H & R Block Artspace. She lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
