Nereida Patricia


Nereida Patricia is a visual artist and poet based in Brooklyn, NY. Patricia’s practice spans sculpture, painting, and performance. Her work draws from Peruvian and Caribbean symbolism, as well as autobiographical fragments, to explore race, gender, and sexual politics. She is most well-known for her highly detailed glass beaded relief sculptures, which are collaged with concrete and glass dust to create multilayered images in bas-relief that chronicle the transformation of the human and collective body in the face of marginalization. These images are narrative yet nonlinear and capture both an intimate and cosmological scale.

Nereida has studied at The New School and holds Bachelor of Fine Arts from the School of the Art Institute Chicago. Her work has been exhibited at venues such as Green Family Art Foundation, Houston; Murmurs Gallery, Los Angeles; Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago; Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit; Eric Firestone Gallery, New York; Monique Meloche Gallery, Chicago; Prairie Gallery, Chicago; Annka Kultys Gallery, London; the Museum of the Moving Image, Queens; and The Knockdown Center, Queens, among others.
