Patty Grazini: Forms of Devotion

Patty Grazini, from Seattle, presents several series of paper sculptures transporting the viewer to a fantastical and sometimes forgotten world. Her work intertwines intriguing and eccentric narratives from history with detail, depth and devotion. Grazini cuts and sculpts fine found and hand-dyed papers from Europe and Asia. Her most recent series is constructed with paper currency from all over the world to portray intricate scenes from nature.

This solo exhibition will feature over twenty works, including pieces from private collections and recent works. Also included is Grazini’s largest work to date, the popular paper sculpture titled Elizabeth Lyska, Giantess from BIMA’s Permanent Art Collection. BIMA is pleased to sponsor Grazini’s first solo art museum exhibition. Patty Grazini is represented by Curtis Steiner Gallery in Seattle.
