Patricia Yossen is a visual artist who works in two- and three- dimensional media and is interested in the complex interactions of memory, space, volume and scale. Working in sculpture, drawing and painting, with a strong emphasis on materials, Yossen explores the idea of perception and how the emotional act of recollection permeates and alters history. Utilizing repetition and reiteration, Yossen comments on our relationship with physical space and the timeless human drive to create comfortable environments to inhabit. Her work has been shown in New York, Los Angeles, Mexico City, Argentina, Spain and Canada.
Yossen was born and raised in rural Argentina, where she received her BFA in sculpture and art education. She went on to study and work in Mexico City for nearly a decade before moving to New York and obtaining an MFA in sculpture at Pratt Institute. She currently lives and works in Los Angeles.
