Patricia Orpilla

Artist In Residence

Patricia Orpilla creates textiles, prints, and objects informed by her archival research into the psychological and material consequences of migration, circulation, expansion, mechanization, and colonization. Using techniques such as bitmapping, weaving, and woodcut printmaking, Orpilla examines how materials can record narratives not preserved through language, and thus prompt questions about authorship, industry, and preservation.

Orpilla received her MFA from Yale School of Art in painting/printmaking. She recently completed a research fellowship at the Beinecke Library researching ephemera such as maps and religious texts concerning nineteenth-century US–Philippines relations. She has recently shown at Jeffrey Deitch, Kiosk Gallery, Front/Space, and Vulpes Bastille. She lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
