6.8 ltdlosangelesltd los angeles holds an opening reception for Patricia Fernández.  The installation at the gallery is part of a larger grouping of works from A Record of Succession that can also be seen in Made in LA at the Hammer Museum.

Fernández’s paintings consist of a collection of re-purposed fabrics and dyed linens with sewn buttons. Alongside the paintings, a grouping of wooden boxes is exhibited as artifacts of a personal history. The hand carved x pattern found in the sculptures and the paintings are from her grandfathers past, recalling a domestic space that holds a narrative and simultaneously communicates an antecedent’s marks.
