MELISSA PATRELLO - VISUAL ARTIST
A SERIES OF PAINTINGS BY MELISSA PATRELLO
Pieced together in squares, each painting is an unruly grid that mimics the interwoven structure of the canvas underneath. Two-dimensional scenes are depicted in patchwork narratives that evoke mountainous cityscapes. In appreciation of our anatomical intricacies, Patrello uses woven cloth as subject matter, weaving awkward shapes and fleshy, floral tones into mirrored facets of her identity.
