Pat Boas shows "Record Record" at the Marylhurst Art Gym

Pat Boas opens a show at the Maryhurst Art Gym this week. The artist makes work that explores and examines language in context—letter by letter, word by word, image by image. Record Record includes four series that comment in very quiet ways on the text and images in The New York Times and a new series of digital works What Our Homes Can Tell Us that captures language found in the artist’s home and places of importance to her extended family.
