Meryl Pataky

Originally from South Florida, Meryl Pataky moved to San Francisco in 2002 to attend the Academy of Art University.  She fell in love with the tactile nature of sculpture and pursued a BFA in the major.  Meryl’s work consistently revolves around elements found on the periodic table. From silver and copper to neon, iron and carbon, Meryl creates a variety of abstract mixed media works that relate to her concept of universal connectedness. In doing so, Meryl combines technical expertise–from welding to glasswork to papermaking–with her own personal narrative, building complex pieces that invite the viewer to guess at what thoughts and experiences influenced her process.
