Studio visit with Leah Patgorski

I rolled down my hill the other day to visit Leah Patgorski in the 57th street studios, a beautiful old church turned studio building. Leah and I overlapped in Chicago briefly but didn't meet until years later in Pittsburgh. With a background in architecture and fibers, her work is a wonderful exploration of color, surface, and form. She often creates textile constructions using recognizable bits of garments to create abstracted sculptural moments that are really gorgeous. One of my favorite pieces was a non-functional tent made of tyvek, just big enough to call my name but without an opening to satisfy my desire to curl up inside. Enjoy a few shots from our short studio visit and stay tuned to hear more from Leah at a 2016 SIX x ATE.
