Resident in Iceland,  Patricia occupies poetry and humor as tools in her practice. She is attracted to kinetic and time based aspects of materials that move, morph or evolve. Some of her works emphasise the contradictory character of water which on one hand is a mundane but vital part of our everyday lives that at the same time has the power to wash away any sign that we were ever here. In her installations the body is implied but absent.

 

Patricia Carolina starts her BA at the Nacional School of Painting, Sculpture and Graving “La Esmeralda” (Mexico City), and she graduates from the Icelandic University of the Arts in 2019. Patricia has collaborated with international artists in multiple fields, and she has exhibited her work in Mexico, Iceland and Finland.
