Bonabode Visits: Patricia Iglesias

February 9, 2019 - Kelly Bergin

I have known artist Patricia “Pato” Iglesias and followed her work for over a decade, and have come to view spending time with her as something of a master class in beauty. She greets her guests with tea and sweets served on patterned china. Her spaces are layered with furniture and objects she has collected over the years that trace the path from her upbringing in Buenos Aires, to Savannah, where she attended school, to Brooklyn, where she has lived for over two decades. Each piece is placed with a nonchalance that keeps the overall vibe relaxed and inviting, and her warmth and genuine enthusiasm encourage long, laid-back visits.

‘I have always been fascinated by colour. I need it around me and on me’.

‘There were several things that motivated this last body of work, but two of them were the death of a close friend and the other was the birth of a baby. Flowers were something that both these events shared.

In these important rituals of life like weddings, funerals and celebrations, flowers are ever present, announcing beginnings and endings, so they became a good starting point for my work.  Flowers have been used in decoration from textiles to wallpapers and silverware and are often associated with the idea of making things more beautiful. In my opinion, flowers are also used as a way of concealing, hiding the ugliness and the pain and the rotten.
