Leah Patgorski’s art production over the past 10 years has been primarily textile sculptures and associated drawings. The forms of her individual work range from flat to voluminous, habitable to uninhabitable, buoyant to collapsing; through these qualities she explores how fabric constructions take on lives of their own based on our psychological associations. Leah has also been commissioned by others to make large-scale pieces including wall panels, a tent, and a fabric rowboat. Her work has been exhibited in Chicago, Pittsburgh, and Vienna. In support of her studio practice, she daylights at the Pittsburgh office of Strada Architecture. Leah holds a B.S. in Architecture from the University of Virginia and an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
