The interdisciplinary work of Patricia Schnall Gutierrez (including painting, drawing, sculptural objects, performance, and installation) draws its inspiration from a self-referential account of personal memories, situations, and emotions. Using distinct choices of mediums, household objects and materials, she creates an autobiographical account of the every-day, drawing the viewer into an intimate dialogue that often probes questions of gender and sexuality. Through her personal stories, she shares a unique perspective on controversial issues facing contemporary women and society.
