Patty Grazini / Curtis Steiner Gallery


This Saturday, Curtis Steiner Gallery will be showing a new body of Patty Grazini's highly detailed paper works (all of the work is made of paper, ephemera that she gathers on her travels). 
Deeply inspired by Paper and Historical research, Patty’s most recent work draws from the life and cultural setting of Elizabeth Lyska, a Russian giantess who became famous in the late 1880s. With historical accuracy and painstaking detail rendered entirely out of paper, Patty invites the viewer to explore the life of this uncommon celebrity.

The centerpiece of the show is a 7'2" (life-sized) paper recreation of Elizabeth.
