Academics / Faculty Patricia A.

"The art of observation embodies the art of creation.”

An international artist dedicated to the alchemical processes of printmaking, Patricia A. Cordoba’s work has been exhibited internationally and is included in important museum collections.

Patricia A. Cordoba teaches Etching at SACI. She is a Mexican-born artist who has lived between Mexico and Italy since 1998. Her artistic research has allowed her to live in different cities around the world, such as Boston, Beijing, and Istanbul.

Patricia's artworks have been shown internationally in museums and institutions: Suyama Space in Washington State; Galleria Tornabuoni, Pietrasanta, Italy; Museo Marino Marini, Florence, Italy; Museo dela Estampa, Mexico City; 2010 International Lithography Symposium Tidalhom, Sweden; and the Kunstmusuem in Bern, Switzerland. Some of her artworks belong to museum collections such as the Kunstmuseum Bern, Switzerland; the British Museum, London; L'Istituto Nazionale di Grafica, Roma; the IberoAmerikanisches Institut, Berlin; and the National Gallery of Australia.

In Patricia’s practice, she creates a dialogue between the techniques of printmaking, her works on paper, and the alchemical processes. This dialogue is needed to develop the work technically, and Patricia approaches the process of alchemical transformation itself as a personal work.

Patricia A. Cordoba is an alumna of SACI (1998) and attended Scuola Internazionale Il Bisonte and Accademia di Belle Arti di Firenze in Florence.

Teaching Philosophy
As an artist, I strive to pass on my personal knowledge by participating with students in the challenges that arise during their time working with process and its relation to artistic creativity.  When teaching Printmaking, my main desire is to communicate the importance of the traditional etching technique as a means by which students can realize their personal visions through the distinctive language of this unique medium.
