Stephanie Patton’s exhibition at Acadiana Center for the Arts 12 Jun – 11 Sep 2021
Stephanie Patton: Comfort Zone
1993 – 2021
A mid-career survey that looks back on Stephanie Patton’s artwork from 1993 to 2021.
Throughout her career, Patton has explored many artforms, including photography, performance art, sculpture, textiles, and more. This new exhibition explores the common threads found in Patton’s vast body of work. Her work includes strong themes of humor, love and caring, health and comfort, which she explores through a wide variety of artistic approaches, including textiles, sculpture, video, performance, photography, and painting. Patton’s craft and process speak loudly in the objects she creates. The end product of Patton’s process are objects of formal beauty and subtle complexity.
“Humor plays an important role in my work. I often use it as a device to bring attention to more critical issues. Over the course of my artistic career I have found that creating humorous objects often breaks down barriers and allows for the beginning of an open and genuine dialog between my art, the audience and myself. In this way, humor transforms my personal experience into something universal.” —Stephanie Patton
This is Patton’s largest solo exhibition to-date and a significant survey of the artist’s work.
