PATTY SPYRAKOS

SELECTED WORKS
 

BIOGRAPHY

Patty Spyrakos is a mixed media sculptor and painter currently living and working in Reyk- javik, Iceland. The form her work takes is driven largely by process in relation to experimen- tation with material, while content is often informed by environmental influences based on place of residency or show location. Her body of work, while reinventing itself per show, also carries underlying themes tied to an evolution of psyche, mental and emotional struggles, and an evaluation of the formation of all manner of bonds within and between self and society.
