Patty Spyrakos

Patty Spyrakos (b. 1974, Iceland) is a mixed media sculptor and painter currently living and working  in Reykjavik, Iceland.  Approaching her works as a platform for fiction, Spyrakos’ imagined characters are richly orchestrated portraits that demonstrate mindfulness of cultural diversity and the unpredictable paths that her gooey mediums take shape in the process. With an emphasis on physicality, Spyrakos' figures emerge as otherworldly inventions complete with enlarged cavernous eyes, pulpy heads and sometimes, brutish appearances that exaggerate the ordinary.
